The New York Mets, perhaps buoyed by the mere presence of Timmy Trumpet, made a huge statement this week over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Dodgers and Mets, respectively, have the best two records in the National League.
Los Angeles has been on a tear since the start of the second half.
The Mets have also been playing well, as they continue to lead the NL East over the defending champion Atlanta Braves.
This week, the two teams met for an all-important three-game series and a potential prelude for a matchup in October.
With last night’s win, the Mets won not just the series, but the season series, giving them the head-to-head tiebreaker if these two teams were to finish tied for the best record.
After today's win, the @Mets officially take the regular season series vs the Dodgers!

Mets Make A Statement
This is a huge statement made by the Mets, who are looking to reach the postseason for the first time since 2016.
They’ve stacked their team to the point that they can compete with the Dodgers for supremacy in the National League.
Regardless of how each team finished in the standings at this point, a postseason matchup between the Mets and Dodgers would be an epic series, whether it takes place in the NLCS or the NLDS, should the Braves wrestle the division away from New York.
The two teams are so evenly matched that it would be hard to imagine it not coming down to a deciding game.
Game 7 of the NLCS between these two teams would be must-see TV.
The postseason is right around the corner and with these two teams so evenly matched, we can all start dreaming about a potential playoff matchup between these two, who are clearly the top teams in the National League, and perhaps in all of baseball.
