The Mets entered Monday's doubleheader against the Marlins with a chance to get above .500 for the first time since late-May, and they did just that -- in front of a raucous crowd at Citi Field.
Jacob deGrom was dominant in Game 1, and the Mets hit three homers in the seventh inning of Game 2 to erase a 4-2 deficit and get to 57-56 while pulling within 2.5 games of a playoff spot.
