Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Jordany Valdespin hit a game-winning grand slam in the bottom of the 10th inning and the New York Mets outlasted the Los Angeles Dodgers, 7-3, on Wednesday at Citi Field in the second of a three-game test.
Josh Wall (0-1) got into trouble immediately, serving up a leadoff single to John Buck, then walking Ike Davis. Marlon Byrd sacrificed both into scoring position, then Lucas Duda drew a base on balls which preceded Valdespin's crucial first homer of the season.
It made a winner of Bobby Parnell (1-0), who picked up the win with a scoreless top of the 10th.
David Wright tied the game in the bottom of the ninth with an RBI single, while Justin Turner had an RBI sacrifice fly for the Mets, who have won two of three.
