SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ Scott Hairston hit his second homer of the
game, connecting in the 10th inning to send the New York Mets past
the reeling San Francisco Giants 8-7 Monday night.

The Giants have lost five in a row, all at home. They lead the
NL West by one percentage point over the Dodgers.

Hairston hit two-run homer in the eighth as the Mets scored four
times for a 6-4 lead. Buster Posey and Nate Schierholtz had RBI
doubles in the Giants ninth to tie it.

Hairston hit a solo homer in the 10th and the Mets scored again
on an error. The Giants got a run in their half before Manny Acosta
earned his first save.

Santiago Casilla (4-5) took the loss. Josh Edgin (1-0) got his
first major league victory.
