Tuesday night’s game between the San Francisco Giants and New York Mets could be considered a candidate for this year’s match. The game finished 13-12 to host at Oracle Park. The team combined for 37 hits and 25 runs in a thrilling event.
New York Mets superstar Francisco Lindor finished with a stat line that included a homer run and six batted runs in it, but City talk had it of San Francisco Giants outfielder Joc Pederson. The former All-Star has three home runs and eight RBIs.

The third house came at an important time. With two men at base and the Giants left two, Pederson fired a direct blast into McCovey Cove to tie the game in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was a Splash Hit 94 and, of course, the ball was shot by McCovey Cove’s ultimate length cove Dave Edlund. This is Edlund’s 45th homer collected in the water outside Oracle Park.
Coincidentally, Pederson stated in a post -match interview that he and teammate LaMonte Wade Jr. You can partially attribute the outfielder’s performance to discussions with the all-time great.
Game New York Mets vs San Francisco Giants by numbers
In an incredible game between the two teams, Joc Pederson made history. He became the second home player to score three homers at Oracle Park since Barry Bonds in 1994, and in the process, he became only the fourth player in San Francisco Giants history with three homers and eight RBIs in a single game.
“Last night, Joc Pederson was only the 4th @SFGiants player in our database to record 8 RBIs and 3 HR in a game, and his first since Willie Mays in 1961. #SFGameUp” – @Baseball Reference
However, Pederson is no stranger to making history. Just last year, the Palo Alto native was only the ninth player in MLB history to win a World Series ring with a different team.
Back in the game, the Mets made their biggest comeback for the season after trailing 8-2 at the start, but eventually fell apart. Eduardo Escobar had four hits for the New York Mets. Francisco Lindor, who has been red-hot in the end, finished the game with a homer on two hits and six RBIs.
