"In the moment, it seemed a bit like a passing of the baton. This was the game the Giants had been winning for more than a year, doing whatever they needed in the late innings to outscore their opponents. That’s what the Mets have been doing for seven weeks so far in the 2022 season, with nine comeback wins, including one in a game they trailed by seven runs. At a bit past midnight ET, it sure seemed like the Mets were out-Giantsing the Giants."
