New York trailed 2-0 going into the bottom of the seventh when Mark Vientos drilled a game-tying two-run shot. Then, the Mets fell behind again in the eighth before Francisco Álvarez crushed a game-tying three-run homer in the ninth, sending the game to extras. After the Rays added a run in the tenth, Alonso delivered the walk-off home run.
Kodai Senga turned in one of the best outings of his Major League career, tossing six innings of one-run ball while striking out a career-high 12 batters.
The Mets will try to win their first series in a month on Thursday when they hand the ball to Tylor Megill. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m.
