The Mets completed a four game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds, adding an 8-1 victory on Sunday to top off their division clinching win on Saturday. Jacob deGrom tossed six innings of one run ball in his first start after being skipped in the rotation and appeared to have regained his midseason form. Dilson Herrera and Kevin Plawecki homered to give the Mets more than enough offense from their day after lineup. BOX | RECAP

“They’re feeling it. There is blood in the water right now,” Reds manager Bryan Price said of the Mets, who are a combined 28-2 against the NL’s three last-place teams. “They’ve already got their playoff spot. They’re facing a team that’s scuffling, one that’s having a hard time having a chance getting a lead. Even with more of their bench players in the game, they’re just riding their high and we’re stuck in a low.”
