The Mets opened a crucial three-game series against the Washington Nationals at Citi Field on Friday and they opened things up with perhaps the most exciting game of the season.
The Mets rallied from a four-run deficit in the bottom of the ninth to top Washington, 7-6, and remain just a half-game out of the second Wild Card spot in the National League. Michael Conforto ripped the walk-off base hit and then had his shirt ripped off him amid the raucous celebration at Citi Field.
