The New York Mets Magic number is just 1

The champagne will be on ice as the New York Mets close in on the NL East crown.

It's been nearly a decade for Mets fans to celebrate a division pennant, and Saturday could potentially mark the end of an NL East Championship drought. The Amazin's can clinch the division with a win over the Reds or a Nationals loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. 

Great American Ballpark in Cincinatti could be a scene of the celebration as the Mets send Matt Harvey to the mound for a chance to make history. The champagne will be on ice as New York has destiny in its own hands against the lowly Reds. 

The Mets have already clinched at least a tie atop the NL East, but fans in the Big Apple want their team to start the real celebration. 

First pitch is set for 4:05 PM ET as Harvey takes on Reds starter John Lamb.
