Meet the Mets

It was nine years in the making, but the New York Mets are headed back to the postseason again. Lucas Duda hit a grand slam, and David Wright mashed a fairy-tale home run in the ninth to back up a strong outing by Matt Harvey, as the Mets would roll to a 10-2 victory. It's the sixth NL East crown for the Mets, and guarantees them their eighth overall postseason berth.
