In a back and forth game, the Baltimore Orioles use a walk-off home run to beat the New York Mets 5-4 and earn a split of the short series.

  • Game 1: Mets 5, Orioles 3
    • deGrom (W), Gausman (L), Familia (S)
  • Game 2: Mets 4, Orioles 5
    • Britton (W), Torres (L)

Wednesday night brought frustrations to the New York Mets. After enjoying an early 2-0 lead and having starter Noah Syndergaard escape a bases-loaded no-out situation in the first, the game went back and forth quite often.

In the end though, the 5-4 loss allowed the Baltimore Orioles to take a split of the mini two-game series.

It was the unknown bat of Henry Urrutia who ended the game in the bottom of the ninth. With one swift swing, he blasted a left-field shot off Carlos Torres.

What got Buck Showalter’s team there was their leader, Adam Jones, homering off Hansel Robles in the seventh after Wilmer Flores gave the Mets a one-run lead with his own moon-shot during the prior half-inning.

Syndergaard could only muster five innings tonight. He allowed three runs and eight hits while striking out six O’s. His stellar performances at Citi Field and average outings on the road has now become a major trend, one to watch come setting the rotation for October.

The Mets will take a blow with no game on Thursday before heading to Colorado for a three-game set beginning Friday night.

They now lead the Washington Nationals by four games, as the second place Nats currently trail the Rockies 1-0 in the sixth inning.
