New York Teams

Aaron Hicks — who found a bottle of the $300 "Ace of Spades" champagne waiting at his locker following his game-winning, playoff-clinching hit Saturday — said X-Rays came back negative on his left ankle after he fouled a pitch off it. He knows it'll be sore tomorrow, though.

Knicks rookie Kevin Knox was asked about his expectations for himself this season at a promotional event for Subway earlier this week. “I just want to win. I feel like that's something, in New York, they haven't seen in a while,” he told ESPN in an interview to promote Subway's new sandwiches. “So that's something that we hopefully can bring back this year, win some games. Get to the playoffs and stuff like that. Of course I want to win rookie of the year, but I can't really do that without the success of my teammates and the coaching staff, who would help me reach those goals. But the No. 1 goal in my head throughout the season is win games.”

WR/KR Kaelin Clay (ankle) didn't travel with the team to Houston. He was downgraded to out. Don't be surprised to see Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard on some punt returns. Cody Latimer will continue to handle kickoffs.

For tough-luck Mets ace Jacob deGrom, who improved to 9-9 with a victory over Washington, 10 is the new 20.

The NL Cy Young race isn't officially over yet, but the engraver can start practicing that lowercase d. That's because Mets ace Jacob deGrom was nails again, limiting the Nats to a run on three hits over seven innings. It's his 23rd consecutive quality start, a new single-season record. His ERA now sits at 1.77, well over a half run better than the next closest NL starter (Aaron Nola, 2.44). At this point, it would seemingly take a catastrophic final start for deGrom to not win the Cy Young. Even if he does get torched next time out, he'll probably still win the thing. That's how dominant he's been.
