Mets 3 Marlins 2: Mets Complete Sweep With Tejada's Walk-Off

The New York Mets (69-83) completed a sweep of the Miami Marlins (66-87) with a walk-off, 3-2, victory on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field. Ruben Tejada singled off of Miami's Ryan Webb with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, bringing home Scott Hairston to score the winning run.

Bobby Parnell collected the win for New York, his fifth of the season, after throwing a scoreless top of the ninth.

David Wright put the Mets ahead in the first inning with a 416-foot home run to center field. The two-run blast off of Ricky Nolasco was Wright's 19th of the season.

Miami tied the score at two in the top of the fifth with a sacrifice fly by Bryan Peterson and a throwing error by New York catcher Kelly Shoppach.

Chris Young started and went six innings for the Mets, giving up five hits and one earned run. He struck out five. Ramon Ramirez and Manny Acosta both threw scoreless innings out of the bullpen before Parnell came on for the ninth.

New York has now defeated Miami in each of their last seven meetings.

The Mets begin a four-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday at 7:10 p.m. ET at Citi Field.
