MIAMI — Garrett Cooper hit a two-out, two-run walk-off homer in the ninth inning, and the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 3-1.

Cooper’s fifth homer of the year came on a 3-2 pitch from Drew Smith.

Mets center fielder Johneshwy Fargas made a leaping snow-cone catch to rob Jesús Aguilar of an extra-base hit to start the ninth.

Brian Anderson singled with two out, and Cooper homered on a 90-mph cutter down the middle.

The Mets’ Dominic Smith tied the game at 1 with a two-out RBI single in the eighth.

The Mets try to win the series over the Marlins Sunday at 1 p.m. on PIX11.
