No Looking Back


Ehalt, Matt, The Record (Bergen County, NJ)


NEW YORK -- Had the Mets not made errors in Game 1 and Game 4 of the World Series, perhaps they would have entered Sunday with a 3-1 series lead instead a 1-3 deficit.

In a series that has featured a pair of blowouts and two close games, it's those plays that did not go the Mets' way that had them on the verge of elimination Sunday night.

Although those plays are frustrating to digest, manager Terry Collins stressed his team was not distraught as it looked to Matt Harvey to stave off elimination.

"It's an honor to get here," Collins said before Game 5 at Citi Field. "What it took to get here is grueling. When you are here, you better enjoy it. Yeah, we're going to be frustrated if we don't win, that's natural, that's human nature. This is an honor and exciting to be here. You can't let the frustration get in the way of what it took to be here.

"That part was the grueling part, that part was the part when it's all said and done when fatigue is gonna kill you. The 162, getting to the World Series, what you have to do. You get here and make some mistakes, it's going to hurt you, and that's what's happened."

Sunday's game marked just the second time this postseason the Mets were on the verge of elimination, and they won their previous do-or-die game in the NLDS against the Dodgers. Daniel Murphy hit a go-ahead homer in the sixth off Zack Greinke to complete a comeback 3-2 victory against the potential Cy Young Award winner.

Prior to that game, Collins had a similar message to Sunday of how he was proud of his team's season whether they won or lost that night. Collins is a supportive manager who will say when his team needs to perform better, but rarely will single out players.

"I'll tell you, I'm so proud of the way our guys made it through the season. This, to me, is gravy," Collins said on Oct. 14, the day before Game 5 of the NLDS. "But they can't take away what these guys accomplished all year long. You can't take that away from them, no matter if we lose tomorrow night or we come out on top. …
