Fernando Tatis’ line-drive double down the left field line Wednesday night led the New York Mets to a 7-6 12th inning victory over the first-place Florida Marlins. The hit scored David Wright from third, and Beltran sped all the way in from first as the relay throw was mishandled.
The Mets, who were trailing 6-5 before the one-out hit, mobbed Tatis to celebrate his walkoff.
Oliver Perez lost his no-hit bid in the third when Marlins’ catcher Mike Rabelo homered to left, advancing the NoNoHitters.com count to 7,371 New York Mets games without a no hitter. Perez gave up just four hits over three innings, but three of them were homers resulting in five earned runs. Duaner Sanchez was credited with the victory.
