The Mets’ pursuit of a wild card spot hit a snag on Wednesday night, with Braves outfielder Ender Inciarte robbing a would-be walk off home run by Yoenis Cespedes to cap off a 4–3 loss.

With two men on and two outs, Cespedes drove a Jim Johnson pitch to deep right-centerfield that was headed over the wall, until Inciarte leapt, scaled it and brought the ball back.

Atlanta completed a three-game sweep of New York, in New York. Watch below.

The Mets fell to 80–72, tying them with the Cardinals in an ongoing three-team race for two wild card bids. The Giants entered Wednesday at 80–71, and face the rival Dodgers Wednesday night with a chance to pull one game ahead.
