HOUSTON — David Wright is not happy with the way the Mets played in their three-game sweep at the hands of the Astros, especially after they won two of three against the Rockies at Coors Field.
“I think that that series in Colorado — and it’s not an excuse, because there’s a lot of teams that have to play in Colorado — I think that series took a lot out of us,” Wright said after the Mets’ 8-1 loss to the Astros Wednesday.
“Coming here, we just weren’t .
“But this is what we need to fix if we want to become the team that we think we are capable of becoming. Way too many inconsistencies right now. Seems like we play great for a series and then poorly for a series. We’re going to have to straighten that out.”
Wright has been playing great. He went 1-for-3 with a triple, a walk and a stolen base and is batting .392. He leads the team in steals with three.
Advice for Manny

Acosta gave up three runs in two innings and has seen his ERA balloon to 9.62. It was 2.89 before this trip. In three appearances, he allowed 11 earned runs in 32
Tejada bats .464 on trip
Ruben Tejada went 3-for-4 and was 13-for-28 (.464) on the trip. He is batting .305.
