It was just a couple days ago when the New York Mets offense looked like it was stuck in cement in a 1-0 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. 48 hours later the Mets looked like world beaters — scoring 10 runs in a 10-o shutout of the Miami Marlins at Citi Field.

James McCann and J.D. Davis were both huge standouts in the victory. McCann’s three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth gave the Mets a 6-0 lead. It was a huge hit for the catcher, who had been struggling since coming off the injury list a couple weeks ago.  The homer also marked the second straight game in which McCann has had a big hit for the Mets — he had a RBI single in the tenth for New York on Wednesday in Cincinnati.

As for Davis, he had a monster night. He went 3-for-5 with five RBI, including a grand slam homer in the fifth inning that blew the game open at 10-0. Davis who struggled in the month of June, had his best game since late May when he had four hits in a game against the San Francisco Giants.

Trevor Williams was outstanding on the mound for the Amazin’s, as he blanked the Marlins on two hits over seven innings of work.

The Mets and Marlins continue their series tonight at Citi Field.
