The Mets topped the Nationals in dramatic fashion Tuesday night at Citi Field with a 6-5 walk-off win courtesy of Amed Rosario's hustle.
The shortstop hit a chopper to short but out-ran the throw to score Adeiny Hecchavaria from third base to win the game.
"It was an incredible feeling," Rosario said through a translator after the game. "How emotional I was just because it was my first walk-off and it's our second game in a row that we won after a bad stretch."
The Mets were trailing 5-4 in the eighth inning when Pete Alonso crushed his 16th home run over the foul pole to tie the game up.
"Thankfully I got one I could handle with two strikes," he said. "Took a short swing and the ball really jumped for me."
Alonso immediately turned to the dugout to celebrate, despite some uncertainty if the ball would stay fair.
"I knew it was fair," he said. "I talked to it. I was like, stay fair, please."
