NEW YORK (AP) - Carlos Carrasco pitched into the eighth inning for the first time in almost three years, leading the New York Mets over the San Francisco Giants 6-2.

Francisco Lindor, who had three hits, and Eduardo Escobar each connected for solo homers. 

Escobar’s second-inning shot gave the Mets the lead for good as they took three of four from the Giants. Mets manager Buck Showalter was back in the dugout after missing a game because of a medical procedure. 

Carrasco allowed four hits and walked none while striking out seven over 7 2/3 innings. It was his longest outing since May 2019, just before he was diagnosed with leukemia.
