Giants defeat Mets 7-5, Kris Bryant homers twice

Kris Bryant hit two home runs, one in the fifth and the other in the seventh, to help the San Francisco Giants beat the New York Mets 7-5 at Oracle Park on Monday night.

Bryant has an impressive record in terms of hitting home runs. The 29-year-old third baseman and outfielder has 21 homers so far this season, and he had 18 with his previous team, the Chicago Cubs.

For the Mets, it was their fourth straight loss, and the Monday night result put them at .500.

Mets’ third baseman and left fielder J.D. Davis preferred to focus on the next game rather than thinking about the stats.

“We don’t really think about our record,” said Davis. “I think we’re more into just winning ballgames, and that is the biggest thing — just trying to get back into this and trying to get a snowball effect on the winning side.”

Mets’ manager Luis Rojas saw an improvement in his players despite the loss.

“Overall I thought the guys swung the bat better than we have in the last four days,” Rojas said.
