The smile Jose Reyes had on his face when he arrived at Citi Field on Tuesday was replaced by a frown Thursday, after he went 1-for-12 as the Mets swept a three-game series from his Marlins. "I didn't do anything here," said Reyes, who was 0-for-4 in the Mets' 3-2 win. Reyes appeared to be safe at first on an eighth-inning double-play that took the Marlins out of a potential scoring threat. But he didn't complain. "That's baseball," he said. "We just need to start to hit and get on base. We have to do something because right now we're not going the way we wanted to." Reyes said he wasn't nervous about his return to Citi Field and didn't press. "After the first game everything was fine for me," he said. "I came here to play my game. Things just didn't go the way you want to. It's going to happen sometimes.We just need to turn it around. It's all about winning." Reyes, who signed a $106 million deal with the Marlins, is batting .205 with an on-base percentage of .262. "That's not going to get it done," he said. Mets manager Terry Collins said the boos Reyes heard from the Citi Field crowd might have affected him.
