NEW YORK, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Ruben Tejada's two-out single in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday boosted the New York Mets to a 3-2 victory and a three-game sweep of Miami.

The Mets loaded the bases with two outs against Ryan Webb (4-3) and Tejada responded with a hit as New York finished off its first sweep at Citi Field since a June interleague series against Baltimore.

David Wright gave the Mets an early lead with a two-run homer in the first.

Bobby Parnell (5-4) was credited with the victory after hurling a scoreless top of the ninth.

Bryan Peterson had the only RBI for the Marlins.
