The New York Mets (30-30) were swept by the Toronto Blue Jays (33-27) on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field with a 6-4 loss in the series finale.

New York battled back from an early 4-0 deficit and tied the game in the bottom of the sixth inning, but Toronto quickly regained the lead in the seventh, and the bullpen locked it down.

Tommy Pham homered twice, while Pete Alonso and Starling Marte also went deep. It was Alonso’s Major League-leading 21st home run of the season.

Kodai Senga started on four days of rest, and it did not go well. The righty gave up four runs (three earned) over 2 2/3 innings while walking a career-high five batters.

Dominic Leone gave up the go-ahead two-run homer to Brandon Belt. Aside from that, the Mets’ bullpen was perfect. Stephen Nogosek fired three shutout innings, while Drew Smith and Jeff Brigham also had scoreless appearances.

The Mets will get the day off Monday before they head to Atlanta to begin a three-game series with the first-place Braves Tuesday at 7:10 p.m.
