The Mets were blown out 13-5 in their rubber game at Chase Field, and finished the season just 1-5 to the National League West’s cellar dwellers. Jon Niese struggled in his first start back with the Mets, and the bullpen imploded. The team now heads to San Francisco for a four-game series with the Giants.
