Tuesday night’s game between the New York Mets and the San Francisco Giants was nothing short of a classic, even in the month of May.
It was a back-and-forth affair that included several big moments, including the Mets rallying from an 8-2 deficit to take the lead, only for the Giants to come right back.
San Francisco won the game by a final of 13-12 on Brandon Crawford‘s walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth, but there were heroics on both sides.
Sarah Langs of MLB.com noted on Twitter that this is the first game since 2017 where two players from separate teams had six-plus RBIs in the same game.
Joc Pederson & Francisco Lindor are the first opposing players to each have 6+ RBI in the same game since Aug. 3, 2017, when Paul Goldschmidt (ARI) & Willson Contreras (CHC) did so

A Historic Night
This game was certainly a wild one.
These two teams went at each other with everything they had and didn’t give an inch.
Pederson and Lindor put on a show with some epic performances and gave us a game that could be considered a classic, even this early in the season.
And it was the first time in five years that two players from opposite sides had six or more RBIs in the same game.
This is certainly something you don’t see every day.
Pederson led the way for the Giants while Lindor gave it his all to try and match that historic night.
The game featured some big comebacks from late deficits.
Both teams gave it their all and never quit, no matter how far ahead or behind they were.
It was just two great teams going head-to-head and showing each other what each side was made of.
This sets up a rubber game between the two sides in their series finale today.
