deGrom, Conforto lead Mets to 8th straight win

Steve Cishek Jerseys #31

NEW YORK — The Mets’ dream April, in which they challenged home run records and pitched their way up the Major League leaderboards despite little from Matt Harvey Jerseys, is over. They put a fitting cap to it Saturday, rocketing two more homers behind a gutsy Jerseys performance on their way to their eighth straight victory, a 6-5 win over the Giants at Citi Field.

Jerseys led the way by doubling, singling, homering and driving in three, in the process completing a torrid two-week stretch that’s seen him cement his spot as one of the brightest young hitters in baseball.

The Mets scored all six runs off Giants starter , who set up the second inning by plunking two batters ahead of Conforto. Winning pitcher deGrom battled control problems as well, posting the fourth four-walk game of his career. But he would have surrendered far less damage had Wilmer Flores Jerseys’ throwing error not extended the third inning, when Hunter Pence capitalized with a two-run single.

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED The kid is all right: Conforto’s second-inning double to left brought home two and his solo homer in Steve Cishek Jerseys #31 the fifth widened New York’s lead. The 23-year-old’s last two weeks jump off the page: .407 average, 14 runs , nine doubles, four home runs and 15 RBIs in 14 games.

Violating the rules: Making an inning’s final out at third base is among the game’s cardinal sins. Yet that’s what San Francisco’s Brandon Belt did in the third inning when he tried to advance from first to third base on Pence’s bases-loaded, two-run single. Belt was thrown out, ending San Francisco’s three-run rally.

UPON FURTHER REVIEW The Giants challenged an eighth-inning play at second base, claiming that New York’s Neil Walker committed interference on his slide into the bag. After a replay review, no violation was found, and the call on the field was confirmed.

WHAT’S NEXT Giants: With rain in the forecast for Sunday’s 10:10 a.m. PT series finale, the Giants will be careful about wasting Madison Bumgarner’s arm with an unnecessary warmup or maybe even an inning or two. Historically, Bumgarner has been excellent on the road, posting a 47-33 record with a 3.24 ERA.

Mets: As if Bumgarner wasn’t enough, the Mets will counter with maybe baseball’s best young pitcher. When Noah Syndergaard Jerseys (2-0, 1.69 ERA, NL-leading 12.8 K/9) toes the Citi Field rubber for Sunday’s 1:10 p.m. ET finale, it’ll set up one of the marquee pitching matchups of the young season. New York is looking for its third consecutive series sweep.
