Things you should know about today's game. Granderson singled with one out, then Smoak singled to center and Hernandez was hit by a pitch to load the bases with two outs. Moments after Wheeler's bat slipped from his hands and almost hit first base coach Ruben Amaro Jr., umpires asked the grounds crew to rake the field.
This year, more of the same with a 2-2 record, 5.03 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in six starts. He was lifted for Robert Gsellman after allowing the first five Toronto batters to reach safely in the fifth. The big first baseman was also big in the win, recording two hits, a walk and three RBI.
Pinch hitter Brandon Nimmo hit a two-out homer to left in the bottom of the ninth off Danny Barnes to break Toronto's shut-out. The 37-year-old Blue Jays outfielder hit 95 home runs for NY from 2014-17, plus three more in the 2015 World Series. The Blue Jays now sit in third place in the AL East with a 21-20 record. After the pitcher J.A. Happ walked leading off the inning, Curtis Granderson doubled to deep right and Josh Donaldson delivered an RBI single.
Shortstop Richard Urena hit a three-run, line-drive homer to left in the top of the ninth.
Mets: New York gets Thursday off before beginning a stretch of 18 games in 17 days. The team is only hitting.227 with runners in scoring position and Asdrubal Cabrera is the only Met hitting over.300. The Jays added three more in the sixth. Part of that has been schedule, part of it has been weather, part of it has been inconsistent play.
After retiring the first eight batters he faced, Lugo allowed a two out single to Blue Jays reliever Deck McGuire in the eighth.
The Mets entered Monday tied for 11th in the National League with 37 homers, including just 11 since May 1.
Mesoraco capped off the night with his first Citi Field home run, a two run shot to left, making it 12-2 Mets.
Juan Lagares had four hits, three RBIs and a stolen base to help NY improve to 12-0 at home against Toronto - the longest such streak in interleague history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. They had scored three runs or fewer in nine of the past 11 games.
Roberto Osuna: Administrative leave extended
This performance comes at a welcome time for Syndergaard, as he got his first win in six starts for the Mets.
NY fell to 3-10 in May while being outscored 70-36.
Syndergaard threw 103 pitches over five innings and allowed two runs on five hits while walking two and striking out seven. Last season the Jays never made it to the.500 level.
5-1 in Happs last 6 starts vs. a team with a winning record.
Martin didn't get any action in his half inning of work as Wilmer Flores grounded into a 5-4-3 double play and Jay Bruce lined out to first base.
Mets: Cespedes sat out after an MRI revealed a mild right hip flexor strain. He struck out three times. The team has a slash-line of.267/.330/.419 over its last five matchups and is 2-3 SU during that stretch. He looked like one of the most promising young pitchers in baseball in 2014 when he was 11-11 with a 3.54 ERA and 187 strikeouts in 185.1 innings over 32 starts.
The Mets start 27-year-old right-hander Zack Wheeler on Wednesday.
In maybe his ugliest outing of the season, Wheeler lasted only four-plus innings and surrendered six earned runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts and three walks. The Blue Jays rotation has struggled a little bit but Aaron Sanchez has been their best pitcher with a 4.08 ERA.
