The New York Mets (62-74) offense came back twice, but the bullpen gave back the lead in an 8-7 loss to the Seattle Mariners (77-58) on Saturday night at Citi Field.

New York trailed 7-3 heading into the bottom of the sixth, but Mark Vientos hit his fourth home run of the season, and Francisco Lindor clubbed his 25th before Jeff McNeil smoked a game-tying RBI triple in the eighth. However, Adam Ottavino gave up a go-ahead solo home run to JP Crawford in the ninth, and the Mets could not erase a third deficit.

DJ Stewart tied the game the first time with a three-run shot in the fourth, his ninth in the last 15 games, and tenth overall.

David Peterson allowed four runs over the first four innings before Grant Hartwig came on in relief and surrendered three (two earned).

The Mets will try to take two of three from the Mariners on Sunday at 1:40 p.m. Tylor Megill is scheduled to start.
