Amazin' Mets clinch 1st playoff spot since 2006
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Mets are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2006.
New York clinched its sixth NL East title Saturday by beating the Cincinnati Reds 10-2, getting a late three-run homer from captain David Wright and another dominant start by Matt Harvey.
Harvey (13-7) was most appropriate to pitch the clincher. He was the NL's starter for the 2013 All-Star game at Citi Field, but needed Tommy John surgery that October and missed all of the 2014 season. Harvey gave up a pair of runs in 6 2-3 innings.
