The Mets entered the bottom of the 10th inning against the Indians trailing, 3-2, but erased the deficit with some tremendous at-bats and some help from Cleveland closer Brad Hand (who failed to cover first base on a potential inning-ending double play as the Mets tied the game).
After Hand's miscue, J.D. Davis put together an incredible at-bat, eventually ripping a game-winning hit to left field as all hell broke loose on the field, with Pete Alonso ripping Davis' jersey off in what is now a walk-off ritual.
With the win, the Mets crept to within 1.5 games of the second Wild Card spot. Here's how the back pages in NYC reacted...
