The Mets took the first game of their three-game set with Giants 4-3 on a walk-off single by Neil Walker in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Jacob deGrom got the start tonight for the Mets and battled through six innings allowing just three runs on four hits while striking out eleven and walking three. deGrom made two mistakes, a first inning two-run homer to Hunter Pence and a fifth-inning solo home run by Buster Posey. He would get a no-decision.
The Mets battled back a few times in this game. Trailing 2-0, Neil Walker drove in a run on an RBI ground ruled double in the bottom of the first. TJ Rivera would help tie the game at two with an RBI double of his own in the fifth. With the Mets behind 3-2 in the bottom of the sixth Curtis Granderson would tie it with a long RBI double.
In the bottom of the ninth with runners on first and second and two outs, Walker ripped a ball down the line off Hunter Strickland driving in Michael Conforto and winning the ballgame for the Mets.
