Longoria homers twice, Pederson adds one as Giants beat Mets

Evan Longoria homered twice and Joc Pederson hit his fourth in the last two games, as the San Francisco Giants beat the New York Mets 9-3 on Wednesday.

The Giants hit four home runs in the first two innings off rookie Thomas Szapucki. Mike Yastrzemski hit the other homer off the 25-year-old left-hander, who was making his first major league start and his second appearance.

New York summoned him from the minors due to the series of injuries that afflict the team.

The Mets lost two of three games in San Francisco. It was New York’s second series loss of 14 it has played in this season.

In addition, a streak was cut by the Mets, who had won 14 consecutive games after a loss. It is the third longest streak in major league history, behind those achieved by the New York Giants (16) in 1934 and the Philadelphia Athletics (15) in 1911.

The Mets lost for the first time since April 10 and 11.

Jacob Junis (2-1) allowed two runs and three hits in six innings. Only 16 of his 86 pitches were fastballs.

For the Mets, Dominican Starling Marte 4-0 with an RBI. Puerto Rican Francisco Lindor 4-2 with a run scored and an RBI. Venezuelans Eduardo Escobar 4-1, Luis Guillorme 2-0 with a run scored.

For the Giants, Venezuelans Wilmer Flores 4-2 with two runs scored and one RBI, Thairo Estrada 3-1 with a run scored.
