It looked as if the New York Mets (16-18) would avoid a three-game sweep on Sunday afternoon at Tropicana Field as they were one strike away from a win. However, Edwin Díaz gave up a game-tying home run to Randy Arozarena, and the Tampa Bay Rays (17-18) walked it off in the 10th, winning it 7-6.

New York took a 7-6 lead in the top of the 10th on a fielding error, but the Rays won it on Jonny DeLuca’s two-run triple off Jake Diekman that just got by the diving Harrison Bader.

Francisco Lindor launched a two-run home run, his sixth of the season. Omar Narváez and Brandon Nimmo had RBI singles, while DJ Stewart plated another with a bases-loaded walk.

Luis Severino allowed four runs over five innings of work while walking six and striking out six. Jorge López, Reed Garrett, and Sean Reid-Foley had scoreless outings.

Box Score

The Mets will head to St. Louis to begin a three-game series with the Cardinals on Monday at 7:45 p.m. Sean Manaea is scheduled to start for New York.
