The Mets were quite happy to leave L.A. and they brought their bats with them as they ventured north to San Francisco, beating the Giants 11-4 in a game that was not that close.
- The Mets pounded out 20 hits, with five different players getting three hits, including Asdrubal Cabrera, who made headlines earlier in the day for all of the wrong reasons. Cabrera was in the lineup at 2B and looked very comfortable there, including a nice play for the last out of the game.
- Yoenis Cespedes and Lucas Duda each homered for the Mets. Duda had three extra base hits and only the odd dimensions of AT&T Park kept him from a second homer, as he crushed a ball in the 9th inning that hit near the very top of the 25-foot wall out in RC.
- Seth Lugo picked up the win. He was cruising through five innings and then the wheels fell off in the sixth. But by then the Mets had a nine-run lead and a few runs didn’t matter much.
- Both Paul Sewald and Jerry Blevins got into the game to get the bad taste from Thursday out of their mouth.
