The Mets won a coin toss against the Brewers today to determine home-field advantage for a potential one-game wild card playoff between the two teams.

If the Mets and Phillies tie for first place and have better records than the runners-up in the other divisions, then the Mets will be the NL East champions based on their 11-7 head-to-head record against the Phillies, who would take the Wild Card. There would be no need for a one-game playoff, because both teams would make the postseason.
