DENVER -- Mets outfielders are starting to awaken at the plate.

Juan Lagares extended his hitting streak to 13 games while hitting .400 (8-for-20) with four doubles in the Rockies series.

Curtis Granderson hit .375 (6-for-16) with a homer and five RBIs in Denver.

Chris Young hit .438 (7-for-16) with three RBIs in the series.

“They’re producing, for sure -- scoring runs, driving runs in,” David Wright said. “They played good defense all year, but for them to swing the bats the way that they’re swinging it, it makes our offense completely different as far as the dynamic.”

Said Terry Collins: “We hit the ball pretty good this whole series here.”
