J.D. Martinez hit the first walk-off home run of his career, lifting the Mets to a 3-2 win over the Marlins Thursday night at Citi Field. The victory gives the Mets the series win.

After the big offensive explosion of Wednesday, it was back to futility thru most of the game for the Mets. Their only run before the ninth inning came on a double play and they had just two hits before Martinez’ big blast.

Francisco Lindor led off the ninth with a walk and he stole second before coming home on the homer by Martinez, his sixth of the year. It was a two-hit game for Martinez, who batted third. His OPS now sits at .785 for the season.

Luis Severino allowed just one run in six innings, as he lowered his ERA to 3.12 for the year. He was on the hook for the loss before Martinez’ blast. Drew Smith also gave up a solo homer. Sean Reid-Foley pitched a scoreless eighth and Edwin Diaz, fresh off the IL, pitched a scoreless ninth and picked up his second win of the season.

    A very inspiring 9th inning. This is what good teams do. Bring on the Padres!

    So, the Mets lead the league in walk off wins and also in walk off losses. Winning is better.

    Long time no comment moved to Israel where instead of hitting bombs bombs hit us still at a spot in my heart, for the Mets must be glutton for punishment. Perhaps I should include them in my prayers for victory.

    Gut Reaction: the Marlins are a terrible team. They can’t field, their approach in hitting is atrocious, no hitting patience, they have no hustle or smart play, and their players are hot dogs. Yet, the Mets we’re going into the 9th inning trailing and losing the series. That is not a good look and it is very concerning. Thank you JD Martinez for making topsy-turvy the Met world right for another day.

    The Mets have conquered the Marlins, for now at least, only needing, what, 3 hits? Now, that is quite efficient, saving those hits for future use when they’ll come in more hand. This McNeil character, it’s decision time here. 78 OPS through almost half a season.
