Sometimes luck is on your side, and that was the case for the New York Mets on Saturday evening at Citi Field.
The Mets were down to their final out in the 10th when Tomás Nido grounded one past Marlins’ third baseman Brian Anderson for a game-tying RBI double. Later in the inning, Brandon Nimmo hit a ground ball right back to the pitcher and Tanner Scott threw the ball away, giving the Mets a 5-4 victory in 10 innings.
New York opened the scoring in the fourth inning as Pete Alonso crushed a solo home run over the left-field wall.
Miami grabbed the lead in the sixth as Brian Anderson hammered one into the gap in left-center for a run-scoring double, and Avisail Garcia scored on a wild pitch. In the bottom of the frame, Francisco Lindor drilled one off the left-field foul pole for a two-run home run to give the Mets a 3-2 lead.
Once again, the Marlins tied the game in the eighth as Jesus Aguilar smacked a solo shot over the left-field wall. That hit ended up sending the game to extra innings before the Mets walked it off.
Carlos Carrasco started on the mound for New York and surrendered a pair of runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings while walking two and striking out five. Adam Ottavino served up the game-tying home run in the eighth.
The Mets will try to take three of four from the Marlins on Sunday afternoon with Taijuan Walker on the hill. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:40 p.m.
