NEW YORK -- Mets manager Terry Collins quickly changed out of his uniform and met the media in slacks and a purple polo shirt Sunday, in a hurry to make his All-Star break flight. The way the Mets are playing, though, Collins and his team sounded as if the real rush was to get back to playing baseball. Jacob deGrom had a tiebreaking single and again shut down the Marlins with seven impressive innings, David Wright doubled twice and drove in two runs, and New York completed a three-game sweep of Miami with a 9-1 victory. Wright, Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares each had RBI doubles, and Chris Young added a sacrifice fly for New York in its eighth win on a 10-game homestand heading into the four-day break. "You hate to take a break when were swinging the bats well, getting great pitching performances -- our bullpens been fantastic," Wright said. "Were kind of clicking on all cylinders, so hopefully we pick up right where we left off." Wright has been on a tear since coming back July 5 after missing seven days with a bruised left rotator cuff. After this 2-for-4 day, he is 12 for 33 (.363) with seven RBIs in nine games. Despite his streak, Wright had a cortisone shot in the shoulder after the game. "There are no issues with my shoulder," Wright said. Wright, Young, Lucas Duda and Anthony Recker each drove in a run with the bases loaded in the eighth, a situation the Mets have struggled in all season. New York even benefited from a rare obstruction call for a run in the sixth inning as they jumped over the Marlins, losers of four straight, and into third place in the NL East at 45-50. What makes this streak -- the second-most wins in a 10-game homestand since Citi Field opened in 2009 -- especially encouraging is that it followed a demoralizing trip in which the Mets lost six of seven. "These guys just stepped it up," Collins said. "You can say it, you can think it, but when you actually do it and have success doing it, it changes things." DeGrom (3-5) had little trouble in his 12th career start, striking out eight and allowing five hits and a run even though he didnt have his best stuff. He also produced at the plate. A .273 hitter (6 for 22) coming in who has batted eighth in the lineup, deGrom got his first big league RBI after Brad Hand (0-2) intentionally walked Ruben Tejada to face the lanky former college shortstop. DeGrom lined a single to centre for a 2-1 lead. "I wanted to get a hit when I saw them walk Tejada," deGrom said. "I just barrelled the ball." Hand was knocked out of the game with a bruised right shin. He took a sharp grounder off the leg in the fourth and then was removed for a pinch-hitter in the fifth. He is day to day. Hand yielded three runs and six hits, falling to 1-12 as a starter. "It is pretty sore right now," Hand said. "I mean it felt fine the rest of that inning but when I came in and sat down for a little bit, it did not feel very good after that." The Mets were already leading 4-1 when Granderson, who had three hits, a walk and an RBI, led off the sixth with a single. An out later, Wright hit a sharp grounder over third base. Rounding second, Granderson slightly altered his path to avoid second baseman Ed Lucas. Second base umpire Will Little immediately pointed at Lucas to indicate obstruction. Granderson raced home but was called out on a close tag play at the plate. Before Collins could post an argument about the out call, Little came in and emphatically gestured toward second base then gave a sweeping safe sign. "It did not look like he interfered with him to me," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "I mean Granderson is a pretty fast guy, I do not know if I have ever seen that called." The Marlins tied it in the fourth thanks to some help from Eric Campbell, who misplayed a fly to medium right field in his first major league start at second base into a double for Garrett Jones. Marcell Ozuna then beat out an infield single to shortstop for a run. NOTES: The Mets came in batting .165 (13 for 79) with the bases loaded. ... The Mets will use RHPs Bartolo Colon, Dillon Gee and Zack Wheeler in the first three games after the break, at San Diego. The rest of the rotation will depend on the health of several pitchers, one being Jonathon Niese. The left-hander threw off the mound for first time since going on the DL on July 6 with a shoulder strain and said he felt great. ... RHP Nathan Eovaldi will likely start the first game for the Marlins against San Francisco in Miami. ... Eric Young Jr. had a pinch-hit single and two stolen bases, and he also grounded out, in the eighth.

Venable and Jeremy Hermida drove in three runs apiece, and the Padres beat the Colorado Rockies 7-2 on Sunday to snap a nine-game losing streak.KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City Chiefs were clinging to the lead early in the second half against Oakland on Sunday when Travis Kelce was stripped of the ball deep in their own territory.The young tight end also lost a fumble a week ago against Arizona, depriving the Chiefs of a chance to score the go-ahead touchdown in the waning minutes. So when Kelce coughed another one up against the Raiders, he could have easily thrown his arms up and quit.With a little help from his teammates, he decided on a different response.Kelce caught a 20-yard touchdown pass during a five-minute stretch when the Chiefs scored three unanswered TDs, sending them to a 31-13 win over their long-time AFC West rivals and giving a big boost to their fading playoff hopes.Its a long game, 60 minutes. Youve got to leave the previous play in the past, Kelce said. We have a lot of leaders on this team to help me with that. We have a lot of playmakers to get the momentum on our side and let me forget about the bad that I did.Alex Smith threw for 297 yards and two scores. Knile Davis ran for a touchdown and caught a 70-yard pass for his first career receiving touchdown. Rookie punt returner DeAnthony Thomas trumped both of them with an 81-yard touchdown that gave Kansas City the lead early in the game.Were a playoff team, Thomas said. We have to come back next week and just play like the Chiefs again, go out there with a lot of effort, aggression, and go out there and make plays.Derek Carr was 27 of 56 for 222 yards for Oakland, throwing a TD pass in the final minute. But he also was sacked four times and fumbled a snap that led to a Kansas City touchdown.The Chiefs (8-6), who had been poor against the run the past three weeks, even managed to bottle up Raiders running back Latavius Murray. The second-year pro had 112 yards and two scores on just four carries in their first meeting, but was held to 59 yards on 12 carries Sunday.Their athletes made more plays than we did, Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck said. Pretty much it.The Raiders (2-12) have lost 10 straight on the road, and still have not won back-to-back ggames since Weeks 7 and 8 of the 2012 season.dddddddddddd. That includes a pair of duds in the Show-Me State.You cant just blame one area, Carr said. This is a team thing.Here are a couple things to remember from Kansas Citys victory:JANIKOW-SKI BOOTS: Sebastian Janikowski may have been the Raiders most valuable player, kicking a 53-yard field goal before halftime and another early in the third quarter to help them close to 10-6. But his solid showing should not have been surprising. The veteran kicker has hit four game-winning field goals against Kansas City.INJURY NEWS: Chiefs linebacker Josh Mauga strained an oblique and cornerback Sean Smith had cramps, though both finished the game. Raiders defensive end C.J. Wilson had knee and ankle injuries that he sustained while returning Kelces fumble early in the third quarter.HANKIES EVERYWHERE: The teams combined for 21 penalties, though far more flags than that were thrown. In many cases, there were offsetting penalties or penalties were declined, leaving that number slightly skewed. The result was a lengthy game without much rhythm.THIRD DOWN: Penalties werent the only problem the teams shared. They also combined to convert eight of 31 third downs, resulting in a busy day for their punters. The Raiders Marquette King punted 11 times for 477 yards and the Chiefs Dustin Colquitt punted seven times for 279 yards.CHARLES SCARE: Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles took a wicked blow near the goal line in the second half and appeared to be woozy when he stood up. He went to the sideline and was put through the leagues concussion protocol, and was eventually cleared to continue. But the Chiefs had the game out of reach moments later and coach Andy Reid rested his star the rest of the game.It was a big win. Steelers next week — theyre big, they have confidence. Going over there and playing Pittsburgh next week is going to be big for us, Charles said. Every game is playoff mode. Its lose-or-go home. Were hungry. Were young. Every week we play is playoff mentality.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
