Big inning sparks Mets

NEW YORK—Six outs away from getting swept at home by Washington, the N.Y. Mets stunned their NL East rivals with a nine-run rally instead.

Yoenis Cespedes launched a grand slam for his second key hit of the eighth inning—capping a colossal outburst that propelled the Mets past the Nationals 11-5 last night that prevented a three-game sweep.

Jays' game with Indians scrubbed again

CLEVELAND—The Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays will try again in a couple of weeks.

The teams will play a traditional doubleheader starting at 1:10 p.m. on May 3 at Progressive Field after their series finale was postponed by rain yesterday.

The game was called about four hours before the scheduled 1:10 p.m. first pitch.

Saturday's game also was rained out.
