This Date in Mets History

One night after Wilmer Flores’ dramatic walk-off home runs in the 12th inning, the Mets topped the Nationals for a second straight night on this date in 2015. Yoenis Cespedes made his Mets debut and went hitless, but it was Lucas Duda who was the star, hitting two homers and driving in all three runs for New York en route to the victory. The win brought them to within a game of first place.
