1. April 15: Wilmer Flores

Flores swatted a two-out home run to left-centerfield to give the Mets a 3-2 win over the Brewers. The win gave the Mets a National League-best 12-2 record.

2. May 19: Wilmer Flores

With runners on the corners and no outs, Flores hit a fly ball to left to score Brandon Nimmo from third and complete a 5-4 comeback over the Diamondbacks at Citi Field.

June 26: Wilmer Flores

Flores laced a single down the third-base line that scored Michael Conforto in the 10th inning and gave the Mets a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Mets snapped a seven-game losing streak and won for only the second time in their last 16 home games.

July 6: Jose Bautista

Bautista hit a grand slam with two outs in the ninth inning as the Mets capped a frustrating night with some full-on euphoria in a 5-1 win over the Rays. Before that, Jacob deGrom was brilliant through eight innings, allowing one earned run and four hits in 105 pitches, with a walk, eight strikeouts and one hit batsman, but the offense was unable to provide him with more run support..

July 9: Wilmer Flores

Flores blasted a pinch-hit home run in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Mets a 4-3 win over the Phillies in the opener of the teams’ doubleheader at Citi Field. The walk-off hit was the 10th of Flores’ career, passing David Wright for most in franchise history — in considerably less playing time. Wright’s nine game-enders came in 6,869 plate appearances. Flores — rarely more than a utility infielder or a fill-in starter for injured teammates — passed Wright in plate appearance No. 1,790.

July 11: Brandon Nimmo

Nimmo’s 10th-inning, pinch-hit, three-run walk-off home run backed another dominant start by Jacob deGrom as the Mets beat the Phillies, 3-0. Nimmo pinch-hit for reliever Robert Gsellman following a two-out double by Amed Rosario and a walk by Jose Reyes. He then drove a first-pitch curveball 433 feet over the right-centerfield fence to give the Mets the victory.
