D’Arnaud Gives Mets 1-0 Walk-off Win Against Marlins
Struggling catcher Travis d’Arnaud delivered a two-out single with the bases loaded to give the Mets a 1-0 walk-off win in 12 innings on Sunday at Citi Field.
Dillon Gee started and pitched 7.1 shutout innings, scattering six hits and two walks while striking out eight. The bullpen followed up Gee’s brilliant performance with a tremendous effort as Pedro Feliciano, Scott Atchison, LaTroy Hawkins, Gonzalez Germen, and Vic Black combined for 4.2 scoreless innings as Black would get the win. Germen struck out five batters in his two innings of work.
The Mets were flat offensively and defensively all day until D’Arnaud, who had been struggling at the plate this season, came up with a bases-loaded single and his first career walk-off hit. TDA also made a nice throw to gun down Justin Ruggiano who tried to steal third base in the sixth.
Lets face it, it was two of the National League’s worst teams facing off in a meaningless game, but there was still some satisfaction in watching the Mets overcome some bad baseball and win this one in extras.
The Mets are off on Monday as they get ready for a three-game set with the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night at Citi Field. Zack Wheeler will take the mound and oppose former Met prospect Yusmeiro Petit at 7:10 p.m.
