Mets complete doubleheader sweep of Giants

The New York Mets completed a doubleheader sweep of the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. The Mets won the first game, 5-4, in 10 innings and game two, 3-1.

New York fell behind 4-1 in game one, but rallied back to tie it and force extra innings. Francisco Lindor delivered a walk-off in the 1oth.

Tylor Megill made his third start of the season and allowed four runs on seven hits over six innings while striking out four and walking two. The bullpen was terrific as Joely Rodriguez, Seth Lugo, Edwin Diaz and Adam Ottavino each tossed a scoreless inning.

The Mets jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the first after Starling Marte scored on a wild pitch.

San Franciso scored a pair of runs in the second to take a 2-1 lead. Joc Pederson tied the game with a solo home run to center and later in the inning, Jason Vosler grounded a RBI single through the left side.

Brandon Crawford lined a two-run single to center in the third to extend the lead to 4-1.

New York tied the game at four in the fifth with a pair of runs. Jeff McNeil plated two runs with a RBI double to right and one batter later, Lindor smoked a RBI double to right.

In the 10th, Lindor hammered a walk-off RBI single to center to give the Mets a 5-4 win.

In game two, Max Scherzer tossed seven innings of one-run ball while allowing just one hit and striking out 10. Once again, the bullpen did a tremendous job as Drew Smith and Trevor May each fired a scoreless inning to hold onto the lead and secure the victory.

The Mets scored all three of their runs in the third inning. Eduardo Escobar drove in a pair of runs with a double to right and Dominic Smith ripped a RBI single to center.

Darin Ruf brought home the Giants only run of the game with a RBI single to left in the sixth.

Lindor, Escobar and Smith each had two-hit games.

Chris Bassit gets the start for the Mets on Wednesday night in game three of this four-game series. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
