Pederson Hits 3 HRs, 8 RBIs Before Crawford Walk-Off Ends Giants-Mets Thriller


Game of the year? I’ll say so. The Giants and Mets combined for 25 runs in a 13-12 thriller (Giants win) that saw 15 runs in the final three innings. Joc Pederson (4-for-6) raked 3 home runs and 8 RBIs to lead the highlights. A seven-run 8th inning from the Mets sprung New York into the lead before Pederson’s third homer tied the game at 11-all. Francisco Lindor hit a triple to score the go-ahead run for the Mets (12-11), but the Giants weren’t done. Pederson singled to center to score the tying run before Brendan Crawford’s RBI single to left that scored Darin Ruf on a play at the plate. The win ended a five-game skid for the Giants, and the game of the year just took place in the Bay.
