Jay Bruce emerged from the deepest slump of his career — 0 for 26 — with a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning on Sunday, rallying Mat Latos and the Cincinnati Reds over the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2.

Bruce drove in three runs with his first Mets homer, and Colon picked up his 10th win as the team completed a split of a four-game home-and-home series against the Yankees.
