As the Mets faced potential elimination from playoff contention Tuesday, down 4-0 in the bottom of the seventh inning to the Marlins, Michael Conforto opened things up for New York with a two-run shot to right-center field.
J.D. Davis kicked the inning off for the Mets with a double to already put a runner in scoring position when Conforto came to the plate. Then, on the third pitch he faced in the at-bat, Conforto crushed the ball roughly 400 feet to put New York on the board.
It was Conforto's second home run in three days, after hitting another one for the Mets in Sunday's win over the Reds.
The duo of Davis and Conforto made things happen for the Mets again in the ninth inning. Davis reach on a single to set up a game tying at-bat for Conforto.
Conforto watched three pitches go by before launching his 33rd home run of the season into the center field. His efforts sent the game into extra innings and kept the Mets playoff chances alive.
