Mets RHP Rafael Montero earned his first major-league win since 2014 by allowing just one run in 5 2/3 innings of work during Sunday's 8-2 win against Giants at AT&T Park.

Making his third start of the season, Montero struck out a season-high seven batters and allowed one run and five hits in his best outing of the year. He had pitched in relief during seven of his previous eight appearances.

"You've got to get some confidence back and it all starts from the way we pitched," manager Terry Collins said after the game, speaking about Montero.

Rene Rivera hit two of the Mets' four home runs as their month-long power surge continued in Sunday's 8-2 win over the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park.

Jay Bruce hit his 20th home run of the season and Curtis Granderson added a solo home run that gave the Mets 46 home runs in June, the franchise's most in a month.

Rivera, who didn't record a multi-hit game since May 9, hit a two-run home run off Matt Moore in the second inning that gave the Mets a 3-0 lead, then made it 4-1 with a solo home run in the fourth inning, as New York won its third straight game following a four-game losing streak.

Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard gave up two hits, while striking out 10 of 25 batters, through seven scoreless innings during Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Giants.

"I've got to rank this one tonight as good as any under the circumstances," Terry Collins said of Syndergaard, who took a no-hitter in to the sixth inning. "He stepped up when we needed him. He stepped up last year when we needed him. He's grown so much, even though he's still very, very young, he's grown so much and matured so much as a pitcher. He's going to be really, really good."

Syndergaard threw 25 pitches in the fourth inning, 19 in the sixth inning and 18 in the seventh, finishing his night with 108 pitches thrown. Bumgarner, by contrast, threw just 21 pitches through the first three innings.

Last night was a confusing experience. It was painful to experience 1,500 innings of baseball between March through last night, only to see it all go up in flames in the span of 10 minutes. I thought a few hours sleep might help my perspective, but it didn't. I'm still unsure where to begin this post-game write up. So, here's where I'm at with the following...

Familia on disappointing loss 00:02:48
Jeurys Familia talks about giving up the game-winning home run to Conor Gillaspie in the NL Wild Card Game to send the Mets home.

A year after blowing three saves in the World Series, Jeurys Familia's postseason struggles continued as he allowed the go-ahead three-run home run to Conor Gillaspie in Wednesday's 3-0 loss in the wild card game to the San Francisco Giants at Citi Field.

"In any circumstances like that, your first thought is you let your teammates down when all you did all year long was picked them up," manager Terry Collins said. "But in the postseason when you give up and you lose games, it really can be hard on you."

Entering in a scoreless game in the ninth inning, Familia allowed a leadoff double to Brandon Crawford and a one-out walk to Joe Panik to bring up Gillaspie, who hit Familia's 1-1 sinker deep over the right-center field fence to give the Giants a 3-0 lead that Madison Bumgarner would not relinquish.

Terry Collins on Wild Card loss 00:07:13
New York Mets manager Terry Collins speaks to the media following the Mets' loss to the Giants in the NL Wild Card Game.

Jeurys Familia allowed a three-run home run to Conor Gillaspie with one out in the top of the ninth inning as the New York Mets' hopes to return to the World Series ended with a 3-0 loss to Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants in the wild card game on Wednesday at Citi Field.

In case you missed it…

  • Familia allowed a leadoff double to Brandon Crawford and a one-out walk to Joe Panik to bring up Gillaspie, who hit a three-run home run to right-center field to break a scoreless tie.
  • Bumgarner struck out six batters in a four-hit shutout. 
  • Addison Reed pitched out of a bases-loaded, two-out jam in the top of the eighth inning by striking out Hunter Pence.
  • Bumgarner got Asdrubal Cabrera to line out softly back to the mound with Ty Kelly on second base to end the bottom of the eighth inning.
  • Noah Syndergaard struck out 10 batters in seven scoreless innings and took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. He gave up two hits and three walks, throwing 70 of 108 pitches for strikes.
  • Denard Span broke up Syndergaard's no-hitter with a clean single with two outs in the sixth inning.
  • Curtis Granderson made a run-saving catch to end the sixth inning when he made a running, over-the-shoulder catch and crashed into the wall to rob Brandon Belt of an extra-base hit.

What's next…

The Giants face Jon Lester and the Chicago Cubs in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday at 9:15 p.m. ET.

The Mets' season is over.

GEICO SportsNite: Wild Card game 00:01:48
Justine Ward, Nelson Figueroa and Jim Duquette preview the probable pitching matchup for the Wild Card game at Citi Field on Wednesday.

Buster Posey had a two-run single in the first and Denard Span a two-run triple in the third as San Francisco qualified for the NL wild card playoff game with a 7-1 win over the Dodgers Sunday in San Francisco.

The Giants will travel to New York to meet the Mets Wednesday in the one-game playoff at a time to be determined. Matt Moore allowed one run in eight innings to get the win for San Francisco.

On Wednesday, Noah Syndergaard (14-9, 2.60) will face Madison Bumgarner (15-9, 2.74) in a matchup of the league's two best pitchers. Bumgarner has two wins over the Mets this season. He dominated them in May in a 6-1 win at Citi Field, then struggled but survived in a 10-7 win in San Francisco Aug. 18.

GEICO SportsNite: Yankees lose 00:01:34
Sweeny Murti breaks down all the action from the Yankees' 12-inning loss to the San Francisco Giants.

After Ivan Nova's strong start, the Yankees fell to the Giants, 2-1, in twelve innings at Yankee Stadium. Mac Williamson, who doubled off Andrew Miller on Friday night, continued to mash against the Yankees, recording both RBI for the Giants. >> Read the full AP recap on SNY.tv...


  • Nova allowed just one run in seven innings, striking out seven Giants.
  • The Yankees took the lead in the fourth when outfielder Mac Williamson bobbled a Mark Teixeira single, allowing Didi Gregorius to score.
  • Williamson got redemption, however, hitting a solo home run to tie the game in the fifth.
  • The game remained 1-1 through the ninth and entered extra innings. Both teams got runners into scoring position in the 10th, and the Giants again in the 11th, but neither could push across the go-ahead run.
  • Williamson struck again in the 12th, driving in Trevor Brown to put the Giants up 2-1. Hunter Strickland shut down the Yankees in the home half of the inning to seal the win for San Francisco.

A survey of scouts done by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports says many officials within the league believe the Yankees could part with Michael Pineda if given the right offer.

Pineda is 27 years old and in his fifth year on the Yankees roster, although has only pitched the last three due to a shoulder injury that sidelined him for two years.

In 2014, he put up an ERA of 1.89 in 13 starts, followed it the next year with an ERA of 4.37 and currently has an ERA of 5.38.
