The Mets yesterday had 16 batters reach base (8 hits, eight walks) , but only had nine Total Bases (seven singles, one double). the ast time the Mets had at least 16 men reach base with so few Total Bases was back in 2004 (June 12) in a 4-3 loss to the Royals, in which the Mets also had 7 singles, one double and 8 BBs. That game was part of the only series the Mets have ever played in KC. The fewest TBs the Mets have ever had in a game where they had at last 16 men reach base is 6, which they the team has done three times, most recently in a 5-3 loss to the Cubs back on August 8, 1987 (6 singles, 9 walks and one HBP -- Darryl Strawberry hit by Mike Mason).
