Flores hits HR in 9th, Mets beat A's 6-5 for 4th straight

NEW YORK (AP) Maybe the Mets still have a chance to make that playoff charge. They certainly think so, and it's showing on the field.

Wilmer Flores hit a solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and New York rallied from an early five-run deficit to beat the Oakland Athletics 6-5 on Saturday night for its fourth consecutive victory.

After three straight comeback wins, the third-place Mets (45-50) will try for a three-game sweep Sunday and a 7-3 home stand. With several injured players finally on the mend, would that be good enough to keep this team intact beyond the July 31 trade deadline?
