One of the greatest finishes in sports is the walk-off win of a baseball game. The New York Mets have been a part of those giving the fans at Shea Stadium and Citi Field nights, or days, to remember.
There have been many walk-offs in the New York Mets history whether it was a walk-off home run, base hit, or a walk. Each one is always a special, fun moment as well as it could be against a division rival or a big come from behind win. The Mets have given fans exciting finishes both in the regular season as well as postseason games.
Just to start us off let us look back to 2016 when the Mets faced the Phillies and were trailing late in the game. Jose Reyes tied the game with a home run to send it to extras and we all know what happened next. Trailing by two in the eleventh inning Asdrubal Cabrera came up with a huge three-run walk-off home run to help the Mets stay alive in the wild card chase, and let us not forget about the little showboating from Cabrera.
Another big walk-off was the 2000 NLDS against the San Francisco Giants. Benny Agbayani hit a walk-off home run in the thirteenth inning to give the Mets a 2-1 series lead where they ultimately won in three games.
Mets fans also love when they can grab a walk-off against their crosstown rivals. It was a Friday night with Mariano Rivera, the best closer in baseball, on the mound in the ninth and David Wright took advantage of Johnny Damon playing shallow on him.
These are just a few of the fun walk-offs in Mets history; now let us take a deeper look into a few more memorable walk-offs from the Amazins.
