The Mets finished their season with 90 wins, as a solo homer by Curtis Granderson lifted them to a 1-0 win over the Nationals Sunday in New York.
- Granderson led off the game with a single, ensuring that the Mets wouldn’t suffer being no-hit in back-to-back games. He also added a double and finished with three of the five hits for New York.
- Jacob deGrom started for the Mets but was working on an 80-pitch limit. Strikeout and walks drove up his pitch count and he left after four hitless innings that included seven whiffs.
- Bartolo Colon and Logan Verrett continued the no-hitter into the seventh, until Clint Robinson broke through for the Nationals’ first hit against Jon Niese.
- Addison Reed got the final out in the seventh inning and Tyler Clippard and Jeurys Familia shut the door. Granderson’s late homer made a winner out of Clippard and Familia picked up his 43rd save of the year, tying Armando Benitez for the single-season record.
- Mets pitchers fanned 43 Nationals batters in the three-game set.
