Mets wrap vs. Royals as tough slate looms

The New York Mets surged back into a crowded National League wild-card race by piling up wins against teams with losing records, but their schedule is about to increase in the level of difficulty.

The Mets first hope to get one more win against a sub-.500 team Sunday afternoon when they visit the Kansas City Royals in the rubber game of a three-game series.

New York (63-60) enters Sunday with 17 wins its last 22 games. They surged from nine games under .500 into the race by winning 13 of 14 against the San Diego Padres, Chicago White Sox, Pittsburgh Pirates and Miami Marlins.
