Recap: NY Mets vs. Houston

Flushing, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Lucas Duda hit a two-run home run with two outs in the ninth inning to give the New York Mets a 2-1 win over the Houston Astros in the second of a season-ending three-game set.

With one out and Tony Sipp (4-3) on the mound, Eric Young tripled to left- center field and remained there after Daniel Murphy flied out.

Duda, though, drilled a pitch that hit hard off the netting on the right field foul pole for the win.

"He's talked about that he can hit lefties and he's really focused on doing that," Mets manager Terry Collins said of Duda.

The home run made a winner out of Jenrry Mejia (6-6), who tossed a scoreless ninth inning. Rafael Montero gave up a run on six hits with a pair of walks and six strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings for the Mets, who had lost three of four coming in.

"It's a game of inches," Astros interim manager Tom Lawless said. "That ball could have hooked foul, but it didn't."

Jason Castro drove in the lone run for the Astros, who have lost four of their last five. Samuel Deduno gave up a hit and a walk while striking out four over four innings.

New York almost scored in the second as Ruben Tejada singled with two outs and Wilmer Flores on second. Flores tried for home on the hit, but was thrown out to end the inning.

The game stayed scoreless until the sixth inning when Dexter Fowler hit a one- out single and Castro followed with an RBI double to give the Astros a 1-0 lead.

New York got a one-out double from Matt den Dekker in the home sixth and he moved up a base on a Young groundout. Kevin Chapman, though, took the mound and got Murphy to groundout and end the frame.

Game Notes

Houston went 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position and stranded seven ... Duda has 29 home runs and 88 RBI on the season, both of which lead the team.

2014-15 San Jose Sharks Preview

In another move that bucks tradition, the Sharks completely revamped their on- ice leadership structure not by selecting new players to wear the precious singular letters on their uniforms, but by stripping the captaincy from Joe Thornton, removing the alternate tag from Patrick Marleau and leaving the other "A" vacant after Dan Boyle signed as a free agent with the Rangers.
