The Mets scored one in the first, but Yoenis Cespedes decided that wasn’t enough, hitting a grand slam in the third inning to extend the lead to 5-0. Cespedes now has 30 home runs on the season.

James Loney homered in the sixth to make it a 6-0 game.

Seth Lugo looked to be in trouble in the bottom of the fourth. With a run in and the bases loaded with no outs, he got a pop up and a double play to end the threat.

The Mets put the game out of reach with four runs in the fifth to make it 10-1.

Lugo ended up going seven innings, allowing two runs on six hits. He has won his last four starts. His ERA on the season is 2.40.

Mets win 10-3.
