New York Mets Complete Sweep Of Atlanta BravesDespite the NFL kicking off and the New York Yankees getting spanked by the Toronto Blue Jays, the New York Mets are, indeed, still playing baseball.

They’re still winning games, too.

Regardless of whether it’s back-page news at the moment, the NL East leaders just finished off the clean four-game sweep of the hapless Atlanta Braves on Sunday with a 10-7 victory.

No matter the opponent or situation, this club continues to dominate.

They’ve now won seven-games in a row and have stretched their divisional lead to a ridiculous 9.5 games over the dead Washington Nationals. The Mets are also a season-high 21 games over .500.

Like it has been in recent weeks, today’s game was all about the lineup. Rookie Michael Conforto smashed his seventh home run of the season. Daniel Murphy clubbed one of his own (11).

Starting pitcher Jon Niese seemed to get back on track a bit by only allowing two runs in seven strong innings.

The Mets will now turn their attention to the Marlins as they’ll visit South Beach for a three-game set starting Monday night.
