And now the wait to see if the Mets have clinched a postseason berth. Surging Jay Bruce drove in three runs and the Mets took care of their business on Friday, shaving their magic number to one by beating the Phillies, 5-1. The Mets officially will secure a second straight postseason berth if the Pirates beat the Cardinals later Friday. The Mets (86-74) moved a season-high 12 games over .500. They only had five batters reach against Phillies right-hander Alec Asher, but four of those came on consecutive two-out singles in the fourth and decided the game.
