A homestand filled with wild emotional swings ended refreshingly drama-free on Sunday for the New York Mets. Rookie Robert Gsellman tossed seven scoreless innings, Curtis Granderson produced his 30th homer and Jay Bruce showed further signs of awakening as the Mets routed the Philadelphia Phillies, 17-0, in Sunday's series finale at Citi Field. It was the largest shutout win in franchise history.

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

The Mets have matched a franchise record by scoring eight or more runs in four straight games. They have done so on six previous occasions -- most recently in July 2011.

Here are a couple of interesting homer stats courtesy of ESPN Stats & Information: Curtis Granderson now has 30 homers and 56 RBIs this season. The MLB "record" for fewest RBIs by a player with at least 30 homers is 64 by Félix Mantilla of the 1964 Red Sox and Rob Deer of the 1992 Tigers. Meanwhile, the Mets have multiple 30-homer hitters (Yoenis Céspedes and Granderson) for the first time since 2008 (Carlos Delgado and David Wright). Add in Jay Bruce's total with the Reds and he has 30 homers, too.
