Mets, Blue Jays & Astros All Win in Walk-Off Fashion on Wednesday Night

Easy there, baseball. We know your time is coming, but there are other sports high on the priority list before you go taking over the spotlight. Wednesday night in the big leagues was one to remember with walk-offs ringing throughout America like telemarketers with a call sheet. One after another, the Mets, Blue Jays and Astros all beat their opponents in walk-off chaos. Tons of fun. Only 120-plus games left in the regular season.


Pete Alonso (Mets): The Mets beat the Rays behind Kodai Senga’s career-high 12 Ks and a pair of game-tying blasts before Pete Alonso’s 3-run walk-off dinger. (Mets def. Rays, 8-7, 10 Innings)


Danny Jansen (Blue Jays): The Blue Jays punched back against the Yankees in the AL East battle where Danny Jansen launched a 3-run walk-off shot in the bottom of the 10th to break a scoreless tie. (Blue Jays def. Yankees, 3-0, 10 Innings)


Kyle Tucker (Astros): The Astros rallied from four runs down against the Cubs in the 9th inning before Kyle Tucker’s bases-loaded walk-off single-plated Jeremy Peña for a Houston sweep. (Astros def. Cubs, 7-6)
