Mets’ J.D. Martinez hits walk-off blast to sink Marlins

mets, marlins

J.D. Martinez hit a walk-off, two-run homer Thursday night for the New York Mets, who were no-hit into the sixth inning before coming back to edge the Miami Marlins 3-2 in the decisive game of a three-game series.

The Mets had just two hits against Roddery Munoz and a pair of relievers before rallying in the ninth inning against Tanner Scott (5-5). Francisco Lindor drew a leadoff walk and stole second after Brandon Nimmo struck out.

Martinez homered beyond the right-center-field fence on a 3-1 slider, his sixth homer of the season.

Edwin Diaz (2-1) threw a perfect top of the ninth in his return from the injured list for the Mets, who won for the eighth time in 12 games. Starling Marte hit into a run-scoring double play in the seventh.

Jake Burger and Jazz Chisholm Jr. hit solo homers for the Marlins, who have lost eight of 10.

Munoz allowed one hit — Harrison Bader’s clean single with one out in the sixth — and walked one while striking out five in six innings. The rookie, making his five major league appearance, all starts, also plunked Lindor leading off the game.

The Marlins stranded two runners apiece in the third, fourth and fifth innings against Luis Severino before Burger homered with one out in the sixth for the game’s first run.

Chisholm extended the lead by homering against Drew Smith in the seventh before Munoz exited and the Mets began rallying against Anthony Bender.

In the bottom of the seventh, Nimmo worked a leadoff walk and Martinez followed with a double for the Mets’ second hit before Pete Alonso walked to load the bases. Bender induced Marte’s double-play grounder before Calvin Faucher retired Mark Vientos on a grounder to short.

Chisholm and Tim Anderson had two hits apiece. Anderson, who was on the bereavement list and missed last weekend’s three-game series against the Cleveland Guardians, went 6-for-12 against the Mets after going 8-for-62 (.129) in his previous 17 games.

Severino gave up one run on seven hits and three walks while striking out two over six innings.
