Brandon Nimmo popped out with two in scoring position, but Lagares came through with a two out two run double, increasing the lead to 5-2.
"Yeah, it was just a fun game", Happ told reporters in NY.
Once the infield puddles reverted to a more manageable mud, the game resumed and Blue Jays lefthander J.A. Happ continued his dominance as if there was no interruption. Smoak's homer was the only hit Wheeler allowed in the first three innings before spending about 25 minutes in the dugout between the third and fourth. But he induced a Kevin Pillar flyout to right to end the threat and then killed a first and second, one-out jam in the fifth by getting Teoscar Hernandez to hit into an inning-ending double play on a 96.7-m.p.h. sinker.
Wheeler (2-3) allowed six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out seven over four-plus innings.
The Blue Jays have hit eight home runs in their last 10 games. Josh Donaldson, Smoak and Hernandez combined for eight RBIs, five hits and five runs. With respect to those three, expecting much from the bats was a bit of a stretch, so I'll let that rotting carcass rest for a day.
Juan Lagares had four hits and three RBIs to help NY improve to 12-0 at home against Toronto - the longest such streak in interleague history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The visiting Mets fell to the Philadelphia Phillies, 4-2, while the host Blue Jays were beaten by the Boston Red Sox, 5-3.
Mets reliever Buddy Baumann batted in the eighth inning for the 17th plate appearance for New York's bullpen this season. Last season the Jays never made it to the.500 level. He's 15-8 with a 3.13 ERA in 40 road starts.
NY placed outfielder Yoenis Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hip flexor, retroactive to Monday.
Phillip Evans was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas and started in left field. He struck out three times. He will carry a 19 1/3-inning scorless streak into his ninth start of the season as he looks to start 4-0 for the first time in his career.
The Mets have lost nine of their last 11 games and are 0-6 in their last six home games. RHP Jacob deGrom (3-0, 1.83 ERA) starts Friday at home against Arizona RHP Zack Godley (4-2, 4.08 ERA). Godley was winless in two starts against the Mets past year despite surrendering three earned runs in 11 innings (2.31 ERA). NY is just 4-10 in Wheeler's past 14 at home overall.
Osuna had recorded nine saves in 10 chances before going on leave, posting a 2.93 ERA and 1.11 WHIP.
