NEW YORK (AP) — Dominic Smith waited a day and then redeemed
himself for the New York Mets.The 23-year-old first base prospect launched the
first pitch he saw into the upper deck in right field for his second homer of
the season Wednesday night Gleyber

, and the Mets went on to a 5-3 victory over the San
Francisco Giants.Smith’s drive came two nights after his overaggressive mistake
in left field cost New York the series opener.“You kind of want to have a short
memory, obviously, because we have games every day,” Smith said. “But we’re
still human.”Todd Frazier homered and hit an RBI double, and Noah Syndergaard
pitched six effective innings as the Mets (56-70) improved to 12-7 in their last
19 games.Jose Bautista also went deep for New York. Jeff McNeil tripled and
singled his first two times up to set a Mets rookie record with a hit in eight
consecutive at-bats. The 26-year-old second baseman grounded out in his next
chance at the plate.Smith charged in hard from left field and barreled into
shortstop Amed Rosario on what should have been a routine popup Monday night,
knocking the ball loose and allowing San Francisco to score the decisive run in
the 13th inning.“I care about the team, I care about the fans and I don’t want
to let anybody down,” Smith said. “You do think about that stuff and you do feel

, but you’ve kind of just got to forget about those
things and rebound from it and play hard.”Smith’s leadoff homer in the second
off Giants starter Casey Kelly (0-2) gave New York a 1-0 lead.McNeil then
surprisingly swung away at a 90 mph fastball on a 3-0 count for a single to
right that produced the second run of the game.“I thought that was a good time
to do it,” McNeil said. “Runner on third base, two outs, I know he was trying to
throw one in there.”Frazier made it 3-0 with a ground-rule double that bounced
over the left-center wall, sending McNeil back to third base after a replay
review.Syndergaard (9-3) started out on a roll, retiring his first six batters
before permitting consecutive singles to begin the third. Steven Duggar had an
RBI groundout and Joe Panik added a run-scoring single to cut it to
3-2.Syndergaard allowed two runs and five hits while walking one and striking
out six. Paul Sewald got two outs for his first major league save.New York got
to Kelly again in the fourth on Bautista’s 11th homer, a two-out drive to center
that made it 4-2.Kelly gave up seven hits and four runs — two earned — over six
innings in his second start for San Francisco this season. He struck out four
and did not issue a walk.“He got us somewhat deep in the game, six innings
there Clint

,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “Could have come
out a little better — we didn’t play great behind him — but he battled and kept
us in the ballgame.”Austin Slater greeted Mets reliever Drew Smith with a home
run to start the seventh, pulling the Giants within one.Frazier answered in the
bottom half with a solo shot to left, his 13th homer of the year.The Giants have
dropped six of seven.SCHOOL’S IN SESSIONSan Francisco outfielder Andrew
McCutchen had a scheduled night off amid speculation he was held out of the
lineup due to an imminent trade. “Waivers, clears or revocables — I don’t know
what that stuff means,” McCutchen said. “I don’t get it. I’ve got a better
chance understanding trigonometry. … Until somebody calls or whatever happens,
then cool. But I have to try and just keep it simple and don’t even focus on
what that stuff means and just play baseball.”TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: RHP Jeff
Samardzija (right shoulder inflammation) made a rehab start with Double-A
Richmond. He pitched four scoreless innings, allowing one hit. He walked one and

Jersey brothers struck gold while searching through their collection of old
baseball cards when they found five 1952 Topps cards that featured New York
Yankees legend Mickey Mantle.On Wednesday, Vin A. Cherwoo of the Associated
Press reported the siblings, who wished to be identified only by their first
names Stephen
Piscotty Jersey
, John and Ed, said the most valuable card from the
group was valued at $1 million by Heritage Auctions."We always knew we had the
cards, but they were just in the attic," John said. "We were fortunate our
mother stayed and lived in the house until she was almost 102. Most people would
have moved at some point, and in the move things like baseball cards and
old-school books would get thrown away. Ours just stayed there for 50
years."John, who transferred the cards to his basement after their mom died in
2006, said he was offered $8,000 for their entire collection sometime around
1980.He added no decision has been made about how to spend the money with the
most valuable of the cards currently part of an auction that runs through Aug.
19."It seems tempting fate to be planning too far in advance of what are you
going to do ,
a counting-your-chickens syndrome," John told the AP.Former NFL offensive
lineman Evan Mathis sold his 1952 Mantle card for $2.88 million in April.
