It seems the Mets would be celebrating a three game sweep of the division-rival Miami Marlins if not for the monstrous swing of Giancarlo Stanton.

The slugging outfielder smacked four consecutive homer runs, split between Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon. On Tuesday, those homers - and 5 RBI's - lifted the Fish to a 5-2 win. After working a walk in the first inning of Wednesday's series finale, he cranked two solo-blasts in his next two at bats (career HRs 199 and 200). But that was all Miami could muster off Jacob deGrom as the Mets earned a 4-2 win and took 2-of-3 in the series.

Wilmer Flores did his best Stanton-impression, clubbing two solo-homers himself to bolster the Mets' offense. Curtis Granderson picked up a hit with runners in scoring position to drive in two, helping New York to its sixth win in the last seven games.

Jose Reyes had two doubles and scored a run in his second game back with the Mets.

deGrom improved to 5-4 after tossing seven-innings of two-run ball. He allowed six hits and struck out seven.

The Mets host the division leading Nationals for the start of a four-game series on Thursday night.

One of Stanton's bombs on Wednesday was estimated at 470-feet, believed to be the longest dinger ever hit at Citi Field. And according to the Mets' flagship SNY-TV, Stanton is responsible for 4 of the 5 longest homer in the stadium's brief history.
