Two Grand Slams in consecutive innings: Mets rout

Jose Reyes as usual led off the game last night with a hit and preceded to 2nd on a errant pick off throw and the Mets were off and running against the Tigers.  The Mets lashed out 18 hits including 7 extrabase hits which included 2 grand slams. Yes 2 grand slams!!! in consecutive innings mind you.  The Mets lit up Rick Porcello and knocked him out in the 4 inning . The 2 grand slams came against Daniel Schlereth who came in to add fuel to the already smoking Mets.  The Mets scored 7 times in the 4 inning capped of by the first grand slam by none other then Jason Bay.

Yes pretty ironic that the guy that couldn't get a extra base hit breaks the Mets grand slam drought. He hit his shot down the left field line. Then in the 5th Beltran popped one over the left center fence for the 2nd grand slam in consecutive innings. The Mets did that once before when Cliffy Floyd and Beltran teamed up a couple of years ago .  

Jose Reyes had his typical day getting on base 5 times with 4 hits. He of course had another triple and was a home away from hitting the cycle.

Good start to another series against a first place team as the Mets are above .500 for the first time since the first week of April. Who are these guys?
