The St. Lucie Mets are in Seventh Heaven, thanks to their savior Tim Tebow.


Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner, hit a walkoff, solo home run in the seventh and final inning of St. Lucie’s game against the Daytona Tortugas Thursday night.


Entering the bottom of the seventh, which was the final frame because the teams were playing a double-header, the Mets were tied 4-4.


With one out, Tebow got up and crushed the ball over the left-field fence to give the Mets the 5-4 win.
