Padres whitewash the Mets 6-0 and advance to the division series

Joe Musgrove shook off the “cheater” cries from the stands after a bizarre review by umpires on the mound and led the San Diego Padres to the next round of the playoffs with a 6-game win on Sunday. 0 over the New York Mets.

Musgrove allowed just one hit over seven innings as his hometown team won 2-1 in the best-of-three NL wild-card series.

Trent Grisham had an RBI single and made a sensational catch in center field. Austin Nola and Juan Soto added singles that drove in two runs.

San Diego advanced to face the Los Angeles Dodgers in the best-of-five division series. The Padres are assured of playing at home in the postseason for the first time in 16 years when they return to Petco Park for Game 3.

With Musgrove dominant in the sixth inning, Mets manager Buck Showalter asked the umpires to check out the right-hander. The rotational speed on all six of his pitches had gone up. After Showalter entered the field, Alfonso Marquez — the umpires’ chief — rubbed Musgrove’s ears and also picked at his hat and glove.

For the Mets, an electrifying season ended meekly at home. The biggest payroll spender in Major League Baseball won 101 games — the second-most in franchise history — but couldn’t hold off Atlanta in the NL East after leading the division for just six days.
