Opposite-field hits. Home runs. Line drives. Even hits against the shift.Mets hitters, led by Jeff McNeil’s magic bat and Pete Alonso’s raw polar bear power, put together quite the display Saturday at Wrigley Field, pouncing on the Cubs as they came away with 12 hits and an impressive 10-2 victory.
A victory Sunday and the Mets will have their first road series win since April 1-3 in Miami.There were many happy Mets, but the happiest may have been hitting coach Chili Davis, who was fired by the Cubs after last season and subsequently hired by the Mets.
The Cubs are still paying him so this is a win-win for the Mets.“It is nice, I won’t lie about it,’’ Davis told The Post of bludgeoning the Cubs. “It’s nice to come in here and win a couple games and we got one more to go. Try to come in here with the same focus and intensity on Sunday.’’
