If the Friendly Confines were any friendlier to them yesterday, the Mets would have each needed a postgame cigarette.
This was a much-needed laugher, allowing the Mets to forget about errors, bullpen woes and base-running blunders for a day.
By the time it ended, manager Terry Collins' crew had a season high in homers and runs scored in a 17-1 demolition of the Cubs at Wrigley Field. The victory snapped a four-game skid and allowed the Mets (40-36) to avoid the indignity of getting swept three games by the worst team in the majors.
Scott Hairston's sixth-inning grand slam made the loudest noise in the Mets' four-homer barrage, but Daniel Murphy homered twice and Ike Davis hit his fifth home run since June 12.
