Meet the Mets
The Mets gained sole possession of first place in the NL East on Sunday when they defeated the Padres 4-3. Matt Harvey looked dominant in six innings, as he struck out ten Padres. Eric Campbell, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Yoenis Cespedes provided the offense while Antonio Bastardo got the biggest outs of the night when he shut down a bases-loaded, no-out threat in the eighth. The Mets now travel to Los Angeles for a four-game series with the Dodgers.

David Wright had no problem sitting Sunday despite having a good game the night before. The third baseman has learned not too push himself too hard with his back condition.
