Mets drop slugfest to Giants on walk-off single

The New York Mets fell to the San Franciso Giants, 13-12, on Tuesday night at Oracle Park in what was a back-and-forth slugfest.

New York nearly pulled out yet another incredible late-inning comeback, erasing an 8-2 seventh-inning deficit before San Francisco walked it off.

The two teams combined for 25 runs on 37 hits and each team led multiple times throughout the game.


Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a home run and a team-high six RBIs to lead the Mets. Dominic Smith had two RBIs while Brandon Nimmo, Starling Marte, Pete Alonso, and Mark Canha each had one. Eduardo Rodriguez had a four-hit night as well.

Chris Bassitt made the start for New York and allowed eight runs over 4.1 innings. Drew Smith gave up a game-tying three-run home run in the eighth. Edwin Díaz allowed a pair of runs in the ninth and blew the save.

The Mets will try to bounce back on Wednesday afternoon with Thomas Szapucki on the bump. The first pitch is slated for 3:45 p.m.
