Giants-Mets Preview (The Associated Press)

Madison Bumgarner hasn't fared particularly well in his first three chances against some of the NL's best arms. The San Francisco Giants hope the fourth goes better to end their starting pitching funk. Bumgarner gets another marquee matchup Sunday against Noah Syndergaard, who will try to lift the New York Mets to a ninth straight win and sweep of the visiting Giants.

The Walk Off: Mets ride historic 12-run third inning to victory (Big League Stew)

Welcome to The Walk Off, the nightly MLB recap from Big League Stew. Here we'll look at the top performers of the night, show you a must-see highlight and rundown the scoreboard. First, we start with a game you need to know about.   The New York Mets offense remained red hot on Friday, scoring a team-record 12 runs in the third inning to help them secure a 13-1 blowout victory against the San Francisco Giants. Not surprisingly, it was Yoenis Cespedes who led the historic charge. In the third inning alone, he collected six RBIs. That included a two-run single early in the frame, and it concluded with a 355-foot grand slam that may go down as his shortest home run of the season.

Giants-Mets Preview (The Associated Press)

Pitching has been the New York Mets' calling card, but the bats have been vital to giving them a chance to end April atop the NL East. After Yoenis Cespedes powered the club's best effort at the plate this year, Jacob deGrom takes the ball looking to lead them to an eighth straight win Saturday night against the San Francisco Giants. It's not much of a surprise that New York (14-7) is fourth in the majors with a 2.81 ERA since its rotation is considered among the best in baseball.
