Mets Look to Avoid Late Collapse, End Skid Against Giants


The San Francisco Giants made establishment history on Friday night, and sadly for the New York Mets, they did as well. As the flooding Monsters hope to keep up with their energy, the Mets will attempt to end their drawn out slip Saturday evening when San Francisco visits New York in the center round of a three-game series.

Giants’ Historic Comeback Streak

Another Comeback Victory

The Giantspulled off one more emotional rebound on Friday night. Patrick Bailey hit a go on huge homerun in the eighth inning, and the Monsters held off a 10th inning rally by the Mets to win 8-7. Following 6-2 entering the eighth, the Giantsscored five runs — all with two outs — against Reed Garrett. Thairo Estrada’s RBI twofold and Matt Chapman’s seven-pitch walk set up for Bailey’s most memorable profession huge homerun on a 2-0 pitch.

Historic Achievement

This win marked the Giants’ third straight comeback victory, each from deficits of four runs or more. San Francisco overcame a five-run deficit in a 9-5, 10-inning win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday and a four-run hole in a 7-6 win on Thursday. It’s the first time in the Giants’ 142-year history that they’ve won three consecutive games in which they trailed by at least four runs. They are the first team to accomplish this feat since the then-Florida Marlins did it against the Giants in August 1999.

Team Resilience

“Obviously, we’ve put ourselves in some of these situations and not been able to, you know, finish out games or put teams away—whether it’s been defensively or whatever it is—but I think we learned from it,” Chapman said. “We keep growing, we pick each other up, and I think that’s huge.”

Mets’ Struggles and Recent Performance

Late-Inning Collapses

The Mets’ loss on Friday was their fourth straight and their third consecutive game in which they’ve hit three homers. This streak is a first in team history and only the fifth such streak in baseball history. Despite hitting three solo homers in Tuesday’s 7-6 loss to the Cleveland Guardians, the Mets never led. Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, and Harrison Bader all hit solo homers on Wednesday, but the Guardians scored the final six runs in a 6-3 win. On Friday, Alonso, Mark Vientos, and J.D. Martinez homered to give the Mets a 6-2 lead before the Giants came back, dropping New York to 9-21 since April 20.

Outlook and Positivity

“You need to turn it around, otherwise, the season can get away from you in a hurry,” Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo said. “We’re just going to try and stay positive in here. We’re going to try and keep fighting and come ready to win and play tomorrow.”

Pitching Matchup: Hicks vs. Severino

Jordan Hicks (Giants)

  • Season Performance: Hicks (4-1, 2.38 ERA) earned the win last Sunday after allowing one run over five innings in the Giants’ 4-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies. He is 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA and four saves in nine career appearances (two starts) against the Mets.
  • Recent Form: Hicks has been a reliable starter for the Giants this season, consistently delivering solid performances.

Luis Severino (Mets)

  • Season Performance: Severino (2-2, 3.48 ERA) didn’t factor into the decision in his most recent start on May 18, when he gave up five runs over 6 2/3 innings as the Mets fell to the Miami Marlins, 10-9, in 10 innings. He took the defeat in his first career appearance against the Giants on April 23, when Severino surrendered three runs over six innings in the Mets’ 5-1 loss.
  • Career Stats Against Giants: Severino aims to improve his record against the Giants and help end the Mets’ losing streak.


As the Giants mean to expand their notable rebound streak and the Mets hope to end their skid, Saturday’s down vows to be a basic matchup for the two groups. With Jordan Hicks and Luis Severino set to go head to head, fans can anticipate a cutthroat and firmly challenged game. The Giants will depend on their new force and strength, while the Mets endeavor to conquer their late-inning breakdowns and refocus.
