Alonso has season-high 5 RBIs as surging Mets beat Padres for 5th straight win

NEW YORK — Pete Alonso had a season-high five RBIs, combining with Francisco Lindor on first-inning home runs that built a three-run lead against Dylan Cease after 16 pitches, and the surging New York Mets beat the San Diego Padres 11-6 Sunday for their fifth straight win.

Tylor Megill (2-3) allowed two runs and five hits over five innings as the Mets opened a 7-1 lead and held on to sweep San Diego for the first time since 2006.

"Those are some of the games that we were losing in May and today we found a way," Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said.
