new york mets

Jonny DeLuca’s walk-off, two-run triple in extra innings propelled the Tampa Bay Rays to a 7-6 win and a series sweep against the visiting New York Mets on Sunday.

With Jose Caballero and Ben Rortvedt on first and third, DeLuca hit a line drive to left field to win it in the 10th inning as the Rays finished off the three-game series in style.

Jake Diekman (1-1) allowed two runs on one hit in the extra inning for New York, which has lost three straight and five of seven.

The Mets went ahead 6-5 when Harrison Bader scored on a Brandon Nimmo single that was overturned after initially being called an out.

Randy Arozarena tied it 5-5 for the Rays in the ninth with a two-out home run to left field.

Rays reliever Erasmo Ramirez (1-0) allowed a walk in two-thirds of an inning in the 10. Starter Ryan Pepiot allowed three runs on three hits before leaving in the third when he was hit in the leg by Starling Marte’s line drive.

New York went ahead 5-4 in the fourth. Bader reached on a fielding error by Jose Siri in center field and Brett Baty hit a ground-ball single. Omar Narvaez drove in Bader with a single to right field, tying it 4-4.

Kevin Kelly came in to replace reliever Manuel Rodriguez.

Nimmo then singled on a line drive to center field, scoring Baty.

Tampa Bay pulled in front 4-3 in the third when DeLuca singled to left field to bring home Caballero.

The Mets took a 2-0 lead in the first inning. After Marte drew a one-out walk, Lindor belted his sixth home run of the season into the right field stands.

In the second, Caballero drew another walk and scored on Alex Jackson’s ground ball up the left field line to cut it to 2-1.

DeLuca reached on a fielder’s choice and Siri’s sacrifice bunt gave the Rays runners on second and third with one out. Yandy Diaz came up and put the Rays ahead 3-2 on a single up the middle, driving in Jackson and DeLuca.

The Mets tied it in the third. With Narvaez and Nimmo on and nobody out. Marte delivered a hard-hit single that deflected off Pepiot’s leg, loading the bases.

That forced the Rays to bring in Manuel Rodriguez.

After Francisco Lindor lined out and Pete Alonso popped out, DJ Stewart drew a walk, scoring Narvaez.
