Queens, NY—–The New York Mets secured a dramatic 4-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants at Citi Field, ending a five-game losing streak. Omar Narváez, after a tough 0-for-27 start to the season, delivered the game-winning hit in the ninth inning.

Brandon Nimmo and J.D. Martinez kickstarted the rally with singles, and Harrison Bader’s double brought them home, tying the game. Narváez then singled home the winning run, lifting the spirits of the Mets after recent struggles.

“All the work that I’ve been putting in is going to show up,” Narváez said.

Adrian Houser’s strong relief performance and Brett Baty’s intentional walk also played crucial roles in the comeback. Manager Carlos Mendoza praised the team’s resilience and timely hitting.

Despite Narváez’s earlier struggles, his perseverance paid off in a memorable moment celebrated by teammates. Hoser (1-4) pitched four innings of one-run relief, one day after being demoted to the bullpen for a second time this year. Houser has a 7.34 ERA, nearly double his 4.00 during seven seasons with Milwaukee.

“The game will always present opportunities,” Bader said. “I’m happy for them. Adrian filled the zone up, obviously ‘Narvy’ got a big hit for us at the end.”

The Giants, who had won four consecutive games, fell back to .500 despite a strong road trip. Logan Webb pitched well for San Francisco, but the Mets’ late-game heroics sealed the win. Additionally, the Mets made a minor league acquisition, adding infielder Pablo Reyes from Boston.

The Mets (22-30) has five walk-off wins among 11 home victories. All five walk-offs have come in series finales.

In terms of injuries, the Giants rested LaMonte Wade Jr. due to a left hamstring issue, while the Mets saw progress with pitcher Drew Smith and announced the return of David Peterson to the rotation following hip surgery.
