    Mets right fielder Curtis Granderson hits an eighth-inning, solo home run against Nationals relief pitcher Blake Treinen

    Jacob deGrom looked especially sharp in his abbreviated playoff tuneup, and the NL East champion New York Mets finally scored on Curtis Granderson's eighth-inning homer to beat the Washington Nationals 1-0 in their regular-season finale Sunday.

    One day after Washington ace Max Scherzer pitched a no-hitter against New York to finish a doubleheader sweep, the Mets (90-72) made a run at a combined no-hitter of their own. They reached 90 wins for the first time in nine years and snapped a five-game losing streak that cost them home-field advantage in the upcoming Division Series against the Dodgers.

    Next up, deGrom starts Game 1 in the best-of-five matchup Friday at Los Angeles.
