UNDATED (AP) — The New York Mets own a share of the National League’s best record at 7-3 after earning a marathon win at Miami.
Travis d’Arnaud led off the top of the 16th with a home run to send the Mets to their fifth straight win, 9-8 over the Marlins. D’Arnaud also laced a bases-loaded triple for the Mets, who also got two more home runs from Yoenis Cespedes (yoh-EH’-nehs SEHS’-peh-dehs) in consecutive at-bats. Cespedes has homered five times in his last three games.
New York gave up a first-inning grand slam to Marcell Ozuna, blew a 7-4 lead and had a potential tying run thrown out at the plate before Michael Conforto knotted the score with an eighth-inning double.
Ozuna came close to winning it for the Marlins, but his long drive to center was hauled in by Juan Lagares at the warning track to end the game.
