Tale of 2 bullpens as Mets, Indians conclude series

The New York Mets have climbed back into playoff contention thanks to a much-improved bullpen. The Cleveland Indians are going to need a similar transformation by closer Brad Hand if they are going to hang on to a postseason spot.

The surging Mets will look to complete a three-game sweep of its interleague series with visiting Indians on Thursday night, sending Noah Syndergaard (8-6, 3.86 ERA) to the mound to face rookie Aaron Civale (1-2, 1.50) in a battle of right-handers.

The Mets won their fourth straight game Wednesday, when J.D. Davis' RBI single to left capped a two-run 10th-inning comeback and lifted New York to a 4-3 victory.
