The New York Mets have finally won a game in 2024.

After falling 6-3 in 11 innings in Game 1 of a doubleheader on Thursday afternoon, the Mets picked up a 2-1 come-from-behind in Game 2.

New York was hitless through seven innings until Harrison Bader dunked one into left field to open the eighth. In the ninth, Pete Alonso crushed his second home run of the season to tie the game before Tyrone Taylor lined a walk-off single to give the Mets their first win.

Jose Buttó, who served as the 27th man for the doubleheader, tossed six innings of one-run ball. Reed Garrett followed with three scoreless frames to keep the Mets in the game.

In Game 1, New York blew a 3-0 lead and went the final six innings without a hit. Adam Ottavino gave up a game-tying home run in the eighth after Adrian Houster allowed just one run over five innings in his Mets debut. Michael Tonkin allowed four runs in the eleventh as the team had just one remaining pitcher left in the bullpen.

Francisco Alvarez had a two-run double, while Brett Baty drove in a run with a single.

The Mets (1-5) will begin a seven-game road trip on Friday when they head to Cincinnati to take on the Reds (4-2). The first pitch is scheduled for 6:40 p.m.
