The Mets have fallen to a season-worst 11 games below .500 (49-60) for the first time since July 5, 2014, after losing two of three in Colorado and being swept at home by the Dodgers this past week.

Los Angeles completed the three-game and season-series sweeps of the Mets with an 8-0 win Sunday night at Citi Field.

Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger homered for the Dodgers, who finished the series with 10 homers in three games.
