New York has lost six of eight overall and is 2-4 since its big trade-deadline acquisition, Javier Báez, made his debut.
NEW YORK (AP) — Rich Hill gave the New York Mets the reliable start they were seeking. Pete Alonso and Jeff McNeil took care of the rest.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — While Rich Hill surely wants to stay in games longer for the Tampa Bay Rays, the 41-year-old lefty has the big picture in mind.
Hill had his second consecutive start of five scoreless innings before four relievers finished off a 3-0 win for the AL-best Rays over Texas on Saturday, when he came out after 59 pitches.
NEW YORK (AP) — Kevin Kiermaier's voice was raspy, the toll of 16 celebrations over 17 games.
“We’re all huddled around,” the Rays center fielder said, describing the large circle that had just gathered in the clubhouse.
