Immediately after failing to get the bunt down, the New York Mets get a walk-off hit from newly acquired Juan Uribe to beat the Dodgers.

While many New York Mets fans downplayed the acquisitions of Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe, nobody can argue the clutch element the latter guy brings. Uribe is a two-time World Series Champion and one of the toughest outs during October baseball.

Today at Citi Field he showcased how clutch he actually is.

Facing Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, Uribe smashed an 0-2 pitch to the left center-field wall, bringing in Curtis Granderson for the game-winning run.

Jacob deGrom pitched brilliantly as usual. He went 7.2 innings allowing no runs and just two-hits.

Juerys Familia uncharacteristically blew the save in the ninth-inning while the Mets were nursing a 2-0 lead.

The Mets broke up Zack Greinke’s scoreless inning streak in the third inning as Nieuwenhuis came to the plate on a ground ball to Adrian Gonzalez.

With the Washington Nationals loss on Sunday, the Mets now move to just 2.5 games behind in the NL East.
