J.D. Davis was hoping to keep the jersey from his first career walk-off.Its whereabouts, and condition, by the end of Wednesday night were questionable.But the Mets’ magic was not, after Davis sent Citi Field into hysteria again with a walk-off single in the 10th inning to beat the Indians, 4-3.
Davis worked a nine-pitch at-bat against closer Brad Hand with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning and delivered a line drive that one-hopped the left-field wall to score Michael Conforto and set off a celebration.
Davis ran into center field, where Pete Alonso ripped off his jersey — just as he did to Conforto after his walk-off during the last homestand.“You hit a walk-off, your shirt’s coming off,” Alonso said.
On a night Marcus Stroman made an early exit with hamstring tightness, the Mets (66-60) sent the roaring crowd home happy with their fourth straight win while clinching another series victory — their 10th in 12 series since the All-Star break.
