Niese gave up just one run in seven innings, and it should have never scored in the first place. Brett Gardner reached on a triple—an easy fly ball to left field that was terribly misplayed by Lucas Duda—to begin the sixth inning and scored on a bloop single.
But David Wright hit a moonshot of a home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to tie the game, and a two-out single by Daniel Murphy in the ninth gave the Mets a one-run lead. Bobby Parnell struck out two and allowed just one baserunner for his second save in as many nights.
