In the home 3rd, Kirk Nieuwenhuis was hit by a pitch, advanced to third base on Kevin Plawecki's base hit. Nieuwenhuis then scored on Jacob deGroms fielders choice. deGrom sailed along blanking the Dodgers as did Greinke.
But in the home 6th, Curtis Granderson led off with a base hit, stole second & was sacrificed over to third. Daniel Murphy was walked intentionally and Kelly Johnson bounced one to first base. Adrian Gonzales threw home & got Granderson out at home. But then Lucas Duda walked to load the bases & Greinke hit his second batter, plunking Michael Conforto. Murphy scored from third making it 2-0.
Jacob deGrom pitched into the 8th inning (7.2 innings) shutting out L.A. allowing just two hits with eight strike outs & a pair of walks.
Jeurys Familia came on to save it but didn't have it today, he blew his fourth save on the year as the Dodgers tied it up scoring two runs. Doubles to Gonzalez & then ex Met Justin Turner made it 2-1, then Yasmil Grandal's base hit tied it.
Jenrry Mejia pitched a scoreless 10th inning & the Mets came to bat. Granderson led off with a double off pitcher Juan Nicasio. After a failed bunt attempt by Ruben Tejada Murphy was walked again. Kenley Jansen came in to pitch for the Dodgers & Juan Uribe who had struck out in the 8th inning as a pinch hitter came to bat.
In just his second game as a Met, Uribe became an instant hero. He hit a fly ball over the centerfielder's head scoring Granderson with the game winning, walk off run.
In 44 games with the 2015 Mets, Uribe hit 6 HRs drove in 20 runs & hit 9 doubles.
