Mets react to Steve Cohen tweet with extra-inning win to stay away from clear
SAN FRANCISCO — Steve Cohen’s shot at his underachieving Mets arrangement more likely than not been on a period postpone that didn’t arrive at his players until the later innings Wednesday.
Hours after the group proprietor pondered on Twitter about his “unproductive” hitters, the Mets took an collective failed attempt at diving off the Bay Bridge for a large portion of the evening prior to showing late life to beat the Giants 6-2 of every 12 innings at Oracle Park.
Kevin Pillar smashed a three-run homer in the twelfth against Tyler Chatwood, the Giants’ 10th pitcher of the day, helping the Mets snap a five-game losing streak and move to .500 as they head to Los Angeles, where they will confront any semblance of Walker Buehler, Max Scherzer and David Price prior to leaving the West Coast.
“We haven’t been playing our best baseball, we were in much need of a win,” Pillar said. “I think we’ve got a little bit of momentum. I think we got the monkey off our back a little bit. Things just haven’t been going well.”
Prior to the game, an obviously baffled Cohen tweeted: “It’s hard to understand how professional hitters can be this unproductive. The best teams have a more disciplined approach. The slugging and OPS numbers don’t lie.”
Cohen’s words, as per Pillar, were a “subject of discussion” among the players.
“He’s a new owner in baseball, he’s a passionate guy and he cares very much about us individually,” Pillar said. “He cares about this team and he wants to see us be successful. … He expects more out of us. I think we all expect more out of each other.”
Column’s impact went before Chance Sisco’s RBI twofold that gave the Mets their last run. Michael Conforto stroked a RBI twofold in the eleventh to get the winning pursued Edwin Diaz terminated two scoreless innings in help. In any case, Jeurys Familia couldn’t hold the lead, giving up a RBI single to Tommy La Stella that tied it 2-2.
Jake McGee penetrated Pete Alonso initiating the 10th and Conforto’s ensuing single put sprinters on the corners before J.D. Davis hit a fielder’s choice to right handle that tied it 1-1. However, the Mets’ assembly passed on with assistance from Brandon Crawford’s splendid glove work. The flipped shortstop made a plunging stop on Dominic Smith’s grounder close to a respectable halfway point and flipped the ball with his glove to La Stella covering the sack for the second out. McGee then, at that point struck out Jonathan Villar.
