Mets hit 3 homers in 5 pitches to sweep Nationals, 5-2

NEW YORK (AP) Curtis Granderson, Daniel Murphy and streaking Lucas Duda homered in a span of five pitches, a sudden power strike that charged up Citi Field and sent the New York Mets past the Washington Nationals 5-2 Sunday night for a three-game sweep.

Noah Syndergaard (6-5) struck out nine over eight innings, and New York pulled within percentage points of first-place Washington in the NL East. Tyler Clippard got the last three outs for his first save with the Mets.

New York finished a wildly eventful 6-4 homestand that featured one trade that fell through, the additions of four new players - including slugger Yoenis Cespedes - and a 162-game drug suspension for reliever Jenrry Mejia.
