Mets rally to snap Jays' winning streak

Jun 16, 2015 - 5:07 AM Flushing, NY ( - Lucas Duda and Wilmer Flores hit RBI singles in the bottom of the 11th, and the New York Mets snapped the Toronto Blue Jays' 11-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory on Monday.

The Mets rallied after watching the Blue Jays take a 3-2 lead in the top of the 11th. Brett Cecil (1-3) took the mound in the bottom half and issued a one-out walk to Ruben Tejada. Michael Cuddyer reached on a fielder's choice and raced home on Duda's bloop single to left. Duda advanced to second on the throw.

Liam Hendriks replaced Cecil and Flores greeted him with the game- winning hit up the middle.

"It's resiliency," Cuddyer said. "We know we're always going to be in the game."

Mets starter Noah Syndergaard struck out a career-high 11 batters over six dominant innings. The 22-year-old gave up one run on two hits with two walks.

His counterpart, Toronto's Mark Buehrle, was also effective, allowing two runs -- one earned -- on four hits over seven innings. The 36-year-old Buehrle struck out five and walked one.

Jose Bautista, who homered in the first, came up clutch in the ninth with a line-drive leadoff homer to tie the game at two. Bautista smacked the first pitch he saw from Jeurys Familia inside the left-field foul pole. With runners on the corners later in the inning, Danny Valencia struck out swinging.

Toronto took the lead in the 11th on Dioner Navarro's sacrifice fly off Hansel Robles (1-1). Ezequiel Carrera walked, advanced to third on Chris Colabello's single and scored on Navarro's fly ball to right.

"I'm proud of these guys, it was a hell of a roll, it's tough to do, 11 games," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "It's a tough one because it was right there and you've got the lead. But it didn't happen so move on to tomorrow."

Bautista got things going with a bang when he homered during the first inning. His no-doubt shot to left traveled an estimated 449 feet.

The Mets didn't have a baserunner until the fifth, when Duda led off with a double down the right-field line. Buehrle, however, retired the next three batters to keep New York off the board.

Syndergaard struck out eight of the final 10 batters he faced.

New York took the lead with a two-run sixth. Kevin Plawecki reached on former Mets star Jose Reyes' throwing error, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and scored on Juan Lagares' double to left. Tejada followed with an RBI double to right that got past Bautista.
