A year ago, the New York Mets had an eventful first homestand after the All-Star break.

The Los Angeles Dodgers' Clayton Kerhsaw nearly threw a perfect game against the Mets, who called up their top prospect, made three trades and vaulted into first place in the National League East.

New York will hope its first homestand of this year after the All-Star will be filled with wins. The Mets kick off the home portion of the second-half scheduled Monday with the opener of a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

IF Juan Uribe agreed to terms with the Indians on Friday on a one-year deal worth $5 million (Feb. 19).

Uribe, 36, had been acquired by the Mets last July along with Kelly Johnson in exchange for minor league RHPs John Gant and Rob Whalen.

He hit .219 with a .301 OBP and .430 SLG in 44 games with the Mets after the trade.

Free-agent infielder Juan Uribe, 36, hit six home runs and had 20 RBI in 44 games for the Mets last season after being acquired from the Braves in July.

There have been no published reports indicating the Mets have interest in bringing him back for 2016. However, he could be a fit for the Indians and Angels, according to a Jan. 25 report by Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.

(AP) - Two balls launched over the wall, one fired over an opponent's head and just like that, David Wright and the New York Mets are right back in this World Series.

Wright homered and drove in four runs, Curtis Granderson also connected and rookie Noah Syndergaard set a nasty tone at the start of a 9-3 victory against the Kansas City Royals that trimmed New York's deficit to 2-1 Friday night.

"We get our offense going a little bit, we play better baseball," Mets manager Terry Collins said.

The Mets brought the show home for Citi Field's first-ever World Series game on Friday night and they've officially made it a fair fight. 48 hours after a pair of games that can only be described as demoralizing, they won Game 3 in decisive and dominant fashion.

It didn't start out that way, though. For the first two innings, it looked like classic Royals Devil Magic as every ball found a hole, helped along by some key non-strike calls I'll charitably call "borderline." Syndergaard looked sharp from the very beginning, and even his high-and-tight message pitch to Escobar was perfectly placed.

The Mets took a page out of the Royals' playbook by using small ball and timely hitting to win Game 3 of the World Series, 9-3, Friday at Citi Field.

Outside of David Wright and Curtis Granderson's two-run home runs, the Mets manufactured one run in the fourth inning and four in the sixth inning to break through against the Royals' pitching.

With runners on second and third and no one out in the fourth inning, Michael Conforto drove in Lucas Duda with an infield single to first, beating Eric Hosmer's dive when neither Yordano Ventura nor second baseman Ben Zobrist covered the bag.
