The New York Mets continue to reach great heights in the 2022 season.
After signing Max Scherzer, Starling Marte, Eduardo Escobar, and Mark Canha, then trading for Chris Bassitt, the Mets looked like a team that was ready to take the next step and turn themselves back into a postseason contender.
Despite some injuries to key players and a few setbacks, the Mets have remained on pace for a big season.
Last night, with their come-from-behind win over the Milwaukee Brewers, they won their 95th game of the year.
They also are now 40 games above the .500 mark for the first time since 1988.

Mets Match History
This is a big accomplishment for the Mets.
It’s hard to believe it’s been that long since they were 40 games above the .500 mark.
But this has been a season to remember for the Mets.
A lot has gone right for them.
Even when the Atlanta Braves began to chip away at their lead in the NL East, the Mets continued winning and reaching great heights, like the one they reached last night.
The Mets’ most recent winning season prior to this year was 2019, when they went 86-76.
For the first time since 2016, they are back in the big dance and have a chance to win a World Series title for the fans in Queens.
The Mets have rebounded from a tough stretch and are once again playing their best baseball, and they’re doing it at just the right time.
They’ll have a huge series with the Braves in the final weekend of the season, which should go a long way in deciding who comes out on top in the NL East.
For now, they can enjoy being 40 games over .500, but there’s still unfinished business.
