Final Score: Mets 4, Braves 3—Ruben Tejada walks off Braves!

The Mets kept their slim hopes at a meaningful 2014 season alive with a wild win over the Braves.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets opened a four-game series with the Atlanta Braves with a walk-off win on a Ruben Tejada single in the bottom of the eleventh inning. After Daisuke Matsuzaka shut the braves out for seven innings, the Mets had a 2-0 lead thanks to a Travis d'Arnaud double and a David Wright home run, but the bullpen—which has been great—coughed up three runs.

Curtis Granderson tied the game on a solo home run in the eighth, and although the Mets did not win the game after a controversial replay call in the ninth inning, Carlos Torres was excellent in the tenth and eleventh innings, giving the Mets the opportunity to win the game in the bottom of the eleventh.
