NEW YORK (AP) — Eduardo Escobar hit a tiebreaking three-run homer, expectant father David Peterson tied a career high with 10 strikeouts in six innings and the New York Mets beat the Texas Rangers 4-3 Friday night to stop a season-high three-game losing streak.

Mark Canha hit a tying RBI single in the fourth that ended an 0-for-14 slide.

Two batters later, Escobar snapped a 0-for-10 rut by hitting a 3-2 sinker from Glenn Otto (5-5) into the right field second deck for a 4-1 lead.

Escobar’s 417-foot drive, his fifth homer in his last 24 games, gave the Mets their first win since beating the Marlins Saturday in Miami. In between wins, the Mets had scored three runs and were outscored 11-1 in a two-game series against Houston.

Peterson (5-1) too the mound after schedued starter went Chris Bassitt on the injured list; manager Buck Showalter hinted the right-hander was dealing with COVID-19.

With wife Alex expecting the couple’s first child, Peterson allowed three runs and five hits, including solo homers to Marcus Semien and Nathaniel Lowe. The left-hander got his third career double-digit strikeout game, throwing first-pitch strikes to 17 of 22 hitters.

Otto made his second start since missing three weeks on the COVID-19 injured list and allowed four runs and four hits in four innings. He threw first-pitch strikes to just five of 18 hitters.

Semien gave Texas the lead by hitting an 0-1 slider to left field in the third for his ninth homer. Lowe hit a 435-foot drive to the second deck in right in the fifth.

Semien singled, took third on a throwing error by Peterson on a pickoff try at second and scored on a groundout by Adolis García in the sixth. After allowing a base hit to Jonah Heim, Peterson fanned Kole Calhoun with a slider.

Seth Lugo and Adam Ottavino followed Peterson’s outing by tossing a scoreless inning apiece. Edwin Díaz pitched fanned two in a 1-2-3 ninth for his 17th save in 20 chances.

NICE CATCH SON

Family was involved when Lowe hit his 11th homer.

The drive was caught by 12-year-old Kellen DeSantis of Long Beach, New York, a son of Apple TV cameraman Keith DeSantis. The ball traveled about halfway up section 301 overlooking the 370-foot sign and the elder DeSantis recorded a closeup and the subsequent replay.

MEN IN BLACK

New York has won three straight in black jerseys and is 5-5 in the black jerseys since bringing them back last year.

BOBBY BONILLA DAY

Mets owner Steven Cohen marked what he termed Bobby Bonilla Day on Twitter. When the Mets released Bonilla in January 2000 with one season at $5.9 million remaining, they agreed to pay him the salary deferred for 12-36 years at 8% interest, 25 equal payments of $1,193,248.20 each July 1 from 2011-35 for a total of $29,831,205.

TRAINER’S ROOM

METS: RHP Max Scherzer will be activated Tuesday in Cincinnati after missing over a month with a strained left oblique muscle. The three-time Cy Young Award winner has been sidelined since straining his oblique while pitching against St. Louis on May 18. … Showalter said RHP Jacob deGrom, sidelined since last July 7, felt good after throwing 27 pitches to hitters in Port St. Lucie, Florida, onWednesday. The Mets will announce what his next step will be on Saturday. “He is continuing to follow every mark that we have for him,” Showalter said. … RHP Trevor May (right triceps inflammation) will throw off a mound Saturday and could make a minor league rehab appearance next week.

UP NEXT

LHP Martín Pérez (6-2, 2.22 ERA), who is 6-0 over his last 10 starts, pitches Saturday for Texas.

Yasiel Puig’s Vin Scully tribute is absolutely heartbreaking

Yasiel Puig’s Vin Scully tribute is absolutely heartbreaking

Yasiel Puig, who shot to stardom during his time on the Los Angeles Dodgers, shared a moving tribute to Vin Scully, who died this week. Like many players, past and present, Scully had an impact on their careers and they shared their thoughts on the baseball icon. But Puig took it to a new level when he shared his tribute on Saturday afternoon.

“I worked with legends,” Puig shared on social media. “I am sorry I didn’t get time to make you proud of me again. But I know you still see me. I know you still with me. I will be better and do better the way you all taught me. My three fathers.”

The post included Puig with three icons Dodgers scout Mike Brito, longtime Dodgers manager, Tommy Lasorda and Scully. All three men have died recently.

A post shared by Yasiel Puig (@yasielpuig)

Puig began his MLB career playing for the Dodgers from 2013–2018 and was thought to be one the greatest up-and-comers at the time.  His journey from Cuba to America was one for the movies and the people of Los Angeles were fiercly protective of him. Hamstring issues hampered his career with the team among other injuries and his stock began to fall. He was involved with an on-field brawl, was often in trouble with the law.

In March 2021, Puig was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a Staples Center bathroom during a Los Angeles Lakers game. He denied the allegations, calling them “false and malicious” but later settled his sexual assault lawsuit.

“Vin is like a father for me,” Puig told TMZ. “Same to Tommy Lasorda and Mike Brito. We so sad to miss all these three amazing guys. Sad for myself and for all baseball, for Los Angeles.”
