Left-hander Conner Menez and third baseman Zach Green, a pair of rookies making their Major League debuts, gave the Giants early life Sunday before Mike Yastrzemski finished the team’s triumphant afternoon.
Menez lasted five innings in his first big league outing and Green rapped a pair of meaningful hits before Yastrzemski drove a full-count pitch from Mets reliever Robert Gsellman over the left-field barrier to snap a 12th-inning tie and lift the Giants to a 3-2 win at Oracle Park.
The Giants won three of the series’ four games. They’ve also won eight of nine games overall. The Giants improved to 22-10 in one-run games, 13-4 in games decided in their final at-bat and 9-2 in extra innings.
