Collins wants Mets to finish strong at home
NEW YORK -- Including Friday night's series opener against Atlanta, 16 of New York's remaining 25 games this season will be played at Citi Field, and Mets manager Terry Collins knows his team needs to finish strong at home.

"We've got to make this a place where we're dangerous," Collins said. "I thought, with the reconfiguration of the ballpark, this place plays very fair now, and we haven't used it to our advantage, that's for sure lately."

While the records are relatively close -- New York is 30-35 at Citi Field and 35-37 on the road -- the stats certainly aren't. Entering Friday night's game, New York had scored exactly 100 more runs on the road (336) than at home (236), and had 137 more hits away from Citi (650-517).

"It's a good place to pitch. We've pitched well here, we have not hit well here," Collins said. "We've got to get the offense going."
