SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Joc Pederson homered three times and drove in a career-high eight runs, including a tying single with two outs in the ninth inning, and the San Francisco Giants outslugged the New York Mets 13-12 in a wild game. 

Brandon Crawford hit a game-ending single off closer Edwin Díaz and the Giants - after blowing a late six-run lead - somehow recovered to pull off two improbable comebacks of their own. 

San Francisco squandered an 8-2 lead by giving up seven runs in the eighth to fall behind 11-8. Pederson tied it with a three-run homer in the bottom half, but the Giants trailed 12-11 going into the bottom of the ninth before rallying with two outs to end their five-game losing streak.
