Giants steal series finale against Mets with come-from-behind victory in New York

New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia took the mound for the third time in as many days on Wednesday.

In hindsight, he probably should’ve been unavailable for one of those games against the San Francisco Giants.

In the series finale at Citi Field, Familia entered the game with the Mets clinging to a one-run lead.

He recorded a quick out before the wheels fell off. A throwing error by Wilmer Flores left runners on first and second.

A single, walk and double later, the Giants were leading by three.

The result — a 6-5 win — snaps the Giants’ streak of 133-straight games of losing when trailing after eight innings.

The hero on Wednesday was rookie Christian Arroyo, who belted a double to clear the bases and give the Giants the lead.

With Mark Melancon on the disabled list, Derek Law came in for the ninth. He allowed a pair of runs on three hits but was able to secure the victory before it slipped away.

Starter Matt Cain continued his solid season, throwing five innings while allowing three runs.

Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
