The Mets dropped their third straight game in Colorado on a walk-off home run in the ninth inning by pinch hitter Charlie Culberson. They had led 6-0 early in the game as Jenrry Mejia cruised through the first four innings, but Mejia gave up eight runs in a terrible fifth inning.
Although the Mets tied the game at eight, fell behind 9-8, tied it again, and retook the lead in the top of the ninth, Kyle Farnsworth came in for the save opportunity and gave up a hit to Troy Tulowitzki and, shortly thereafter, the aforementioned walk-off home run.
