For the third time in four games, the Mets and Giants played extra innings and for the third time, the Giants came out on top, this time by a 3-2 score Sunday in San Francisco.
Mike Yazstrzemski delivered a walk-off homer to left field in the bottom of the 12th to send the Mets to another heartbreaking extra inning loss. They finished the road trip 5-4 and with a tiny bit of luck – or offense – they could have been 8-1.
Michael Conforto and Amed Rosario delivered solo homers in the second inning to give the Mets a 2-0 lead. But that was virtually all of the offense the Mets could muster in the game. In fact, they were no-hit for eight innings after the homers before J.D. Davis singled in the 11th inning.
Steven Matz started and allowed two scratch runs over six innings. He did his best pitching in the fifth inning, as he worked around a leadoff two-base error, and the sixth, as he struck out the side. But apparently he’s still not stretched out after his pre AS break stint in the bullpen, as the Mets brought in a reliever to pitch the seventh.
Justin Wilson pitched a scoreless frame, Seth Lugo followed with two and Edwin Diaz had an easy 10th inning, leading to speculation from the booth that he would come out for a second inning. Instead it was Jeurys Familia, who was quickly pulled after walking the first two batters. Robert Gsellman came on to get a GDP and a liner to center to escape the 11th. But his luck ran out when he came back out in the 12th to serve up the gopher ball.
The Mets outscored the Giants, 15-11, in the four-game series yet finished 1-3.
