Greatest Game of the Year to Date; Joc Pederson Hits Three Home Runs, Drives in Tying Run Bottom Ninth and Plates Eight; Forces Rubber Match v. Mets

This was the biggest game of the young season. And it was a wild one the Giants won on a walkoff. I don’t even know how to write this one up. The Giants jumped out to an 8 – 2 lead in support of Logan Webb and this one seemed in the bag.

But the Mets are legit. They fought all the way back and took the lead 10 – 8, much of it against Tyler Rodgers, whom they jacked for seven earned runs in a third of an inning! WTF? I gotta say, I am trying really hard to understand Kap and Co. They came back to win this one, but it was insane.

AP said: “Joc Pederson homered three times and drove in a career-high eight runs, including a tying single with two outs in the ninth inning, and the San Francisco Giants outslugged the New York Mets 13-12 on Tuesday night in one of the wildest games imaginable.”

“San Francisco squandered an 8-2 cushion by giving up seven runs in the eighth to fall behind 11-8. Pederson tied it with a three-run homer in the bottom half, but the Giants trailed 12-11 in the ninth before rallying with two outs and none on to stun New York and end their five-game losing streak.

“Brandon Crawford hit a game-winning single off closer Edwin Diaz and the Giants — after blowing a late six-run lead — somehow recovered to pull off two improbable comebacks of their own.

“Pederson’s eight RBI were tied for third-most by a Giants player in one game since RBI became an official statistic in 1920. The only players with more were Phil Weintraub with 11 in April 1944 and Irish Meusel with nine in September 1925.”

crazy game. see ya tomorrow!
