The Mets walked away with a split of their two game set with the Rangers in Texas thanks to a strong outing from Zack Wheeler and a late break.
Wheeler fell behind 1-0 after struggling in the bottom of the first, but would settle down to pitch the next six innings without letting in a run. Jay Bruce would pick up the slack ripping a 2-run homer in the fourth and a solo shot in the sixth to give the Mets a 3-1 lead.
Jerry Blevins came on to pitch the eighth, but could not protect the lead as he surrendered a two-run home run to Robinson Chirinos which tied the game. The Mets would bounce back in the top of the ninth as Matt Reynolds would score the go-ahead run as Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus bobbled a catch at second base that would have ended the inning.
The Mets send Matt Harvey to the hill on Friday night as they begin a four game weekend series including a Saturday doubleheader vs the Braves. Coverage on WOR begins at 6:05 pm with Pete McCarthy & 'Mets on Deck'.
