The barbs hardly seemed to inspire New York early on. Six Giants pitchers combined to blank the Mets until the ninth inning, when J.D. Davis provided a tying sacrifice fly.

The Mets offense finally broke through in earnest in extras. The teams traded runs in the 11th before the Mets scored four runs against Tyler Chatwood (1-3) in the 12th. Pillar — a former Giants player — broke a 2-2 tie with his 10th homer of the year, and Chance Sisco added an RBI double to make it 6-2.

Mets manager Luis Rojas addressed Cohen’s statement before the game and said the players and coaches needed to be held “负责” for their results.

I’m aware of the tweet from Steve,” 罗哈斯说. “We’re working really hard every day. We’re trying to find our way to win some games.

Entering Wednesday, the Mets’ 450 runs were third-fewest in MLB, ahead of only Texas (446) and Pittsburgh (431).

Michael Conforto also had an RBI for the Mets. Lamonte Wade Jr. and Tommy La Stella recorded RBIs for San Francisco.

The Giants used eight relievers, who combined for 10 2/3 innings after starter Anthony DeSclafani exited with right ankle discomfort in the top of the second.

New York starter Tylor Megill pitched six innings, allowing just one run. Jeurys Familia (7-3) surrendered an unearned run in the 11th but still got the win.


The Giants made a pair of highlight-reel defensive plays to keep the game tied at 1 in the late innings. In the ninth, shortstop Brandon Crawford robbed Dominic Smith of a single up the middle by diving to his left and using his glove to flip the ball to second base, forcing out Conforto.

The next inning, with a runner on first base, Wade took an extra-base hit away from Pillar with a leaping catch against the left-field wall.
