The Mets salvaged the finale of their three game series and beat the Atlanta Braves 4-3 on a walk-off sacrifice fly off the bat of Curtis Granderson in the bottom of the 14th inning.

Zack Wheeler started for the Mets and earned a quality start, tossing six innings and allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six batters.

The Mets got eight scoreless innings of relief from the bullpen including three from Daisuke Matsuzaka and two by Carlos Torres. Jose Valverde, who lost his job as closer before the game, pitched the 14th inning and picked up the win. 

David Wright followed up Saturday’s three-hit game with four more hits to raise his average to .316 for the season. Lucas Duda contributed two ribbies and a pair of singles as he and Wright collected six of the Mets’ nine hits.

Granderson was hitless in six at-bats before lifting a shallow fly that was deep enough to score Kirk Nieuwenhuis in the 14th.

With the win, the Mets improved their home record to 3-6 at Citi Field this season.

The Mets begin a four game series with the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday at 7:10 PM. RHP Jenrry Mejia gets the start for the Mets.
