Martin Prado provided the dramatics, hitting a sacrifice fly with the bases loaded to drive home the winning run. Prado fouled off six straight pitches on a full count before lining the ball into leftfield on the 12th pitch of the at bat, deep enough to score Jeff Mathis.
Prado also hit a walk-off double to give Miami a win over New York on Friday.
The Mets entered Sunday with a five-game lead over the Washington Nationals in the NL East. The Nationals won their fifth straight game to move within four of the Mets.
Here's video of the walkoff and the celebration:
