Final Score: Mets 2, Astros 1—Lucas Duda hits a walk-off home run

The Mets never led until they won in the bottom of the ninth.

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets hardly did anything at the plate all night, but Eric Young Jr. tripled in the ninth inning, and Lucas Duda hit a two-run walk-off home run off the right field foul pole to give the Mets a victory over the Houston Astros. The home run was Duda’s twenty-ninth of the 2014 season.

Before all that, Rafeal Montero went five-and-one-third innings and gave up just one run. He struck out six and walked just two in the process. From there, Buddy Carlyle, Jeurys Familia, and Jenrry Mejia kept the Astros off the board. The Mets and Astros play the last game of the season tomorrow afternoon at Citi Field.
