SAN FRANCISCO -- As the stragglers stumbled into the visitors clubhouse, some New York Mets players hollered and high-fived teammates as they passed through the dr. This was just the kind of celebration that had escaped them before. Eric Young Jr. scored on shortstop Brandon Crawfords fielding error with two outs in the 16th inning, and the Mets outlasted the San Francisco Giants 4-3 in a game that ended early Tuesday morning. The Mets already had played three games of at least 15 innings this season -- and lost each one. "Ive never heard of anything like this. Its unbelievable," manager Terry Collins said. "At least were used to it." Young singled with one out and stole second to start the final rally. After he advanced to third on Daniel Murphys groundout, lefty Javier Lopez entered and intentionally walked David Wright. Crawford couldnt handle pinch-hitter Anthony Reckers grounder, allowing Young to score and handing New York the victory. The game lasted 5 hours, 26 minutes. "Weve played in some long games and we havent always come out on the winning side," Recker said. "As sn as the 10th inning started, we were like, Are we really going to do this again?" It was the longest game in time and innings the Giants had played since losing 1-0 to the Arizona Diamondbacks in 18 innings on May 9, 2001. Marco Scutaro walked leading off the bottom of the 16th inning, and Buster Posey hit a one-out single for the first five-hit game of his career. But Bobby Parnell regrouped to strike out Pablo Sandoval and retire pinch-hitter Guillermo Quiroz on a grounder for his 16th save. Posey went 5 for 8, including a two-run homer and two doubles. San Francisco has lost 12 of 14 and is a season-high eight games below .500. The Giants went 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position and stranded 18 overall -- 13 in the last six innings. "Thats as frustrating a game as weve had," manager Bruce Bochy said. Tim Lincecum and Matt Harvey each threw seven innings of three-run ball before the bullpens shut down the opposition. Harvey said a blister on his right index finger has been bothering him his last two starts but he doesnt consider it an issue. "Im just glad we won," he said. Josh Edgin (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. George Kontos (2-2) allowed the one unearned run in 2 2-3 otherwise solid innings. It was the 18th major league game to go 14 innings or more this season, two shy of last years total, according to STATS. The Mets improved to 1-3 in games of at least 15 innings. The last team to play that many in one season was the 2004 Minnesota Twins, who went 2-2, according to STATS. By the time the final out was recorded at 12:42 a.m. local time, only a few thousand fans remained from an announced sellout crowd of 41,497. The ferry back to Oakland-Alameda had blown its departing horn at 110 p.m., and the final BART trains left about midnight. The Giants even held a 14th-inning stretch for those who stayed. So many seagulls started to hover above the stands that the scoreboard operator asked fans to clap to try and scare them away. Both teams had chances to end the game earlier. With runners on second and third in the 11th, Crawford made a diving stop on Marlon Byrds grounder at shortstop and recovered for a perfect throw from the outfield grass. In the 12th, Sandoval snagged Omar Quintanillas liner at third and threw to first to get Kirk Nieuwenhuis for a double play. The Giants blew a gift-wrapped opportunity when Posey doubled after his fly ball bounced off the glove of Murphy backpedaling from second while Byrd tried to make a sliding catch coming in from right. Sandoval was intentionally walked before Byrd caught Hunter Pences slicing liner and Crawford flied out. Brandon Belt, batting in the third spot for the first time in his career, was 0 for 8 with five strikeouts, including the final out of the 12th inning with two runners on base. Bochy said he expects to keep Belt in that spot Tuesday night. Cole Gillespie broke his bat grounding out in the 13th with runners on second and third, and Gregor Blanco grounded out with the bases loaded in the 15th. Poseys 13th homer put the Giants ahead 2-0 in the first. Byrd singled leading off the fifth for the first hit off Lincecum, and John Bucks double sliced San Franciscos lead to 2-1. Young tripled leading off the sixth, and Murphy followed with the tying single. Murphy advanced to third on Scutaros throwing error at second base and scored when Ike Davis grounded into a double play to give the Mets a 3-2 lead. Lincecum had a season-high 11 strikeouts in seven innings. He gave up three runs, six hits and one walk. It was the 33rd time Lincecum has had at least 10 strikeouts in a game and the first time this year. But the two-time NL Cy Young Award winner was nowhere to be found in the Giants clubhouse after the game. A team spokesman said he had already left to recover -- as did many of his teammates. Other than Posey, Harvey had his way with San Franciscos lineup until late. He allowed three runs and six hits, striking out six and walking one. Pence, who made a pair of diving catches in right field, tripled leading off the seventh. The ball hit the cement near the top of the right-field wall and ricocheted back onto the field. Umpires reviewed the play and ruled that the triple std, though the decision turned out to be an afterthought. Crawford immediately singled home Pence for the tying run. "Theres frustration," Pence said. "We want to stay as positive as we can right now. Weve got to get it done. Weve got to keep pushing to find a way to turn it around." NOTES: Posey will get Tuesday nights game off after catching 16 innings, Bochy said. ... Mets LHP Jonathon Niese (shoulder inflammation) has been cleared to start throwing again.

Max Verstappen insists Nico Rosberg did not attempt to turn in properly during their controversial moment at the German Grand Prix, saying it was similar to the Mercedes collision in Austria.On lap 30 Rosberg made a late lunge down the inside of Verstappen, who had to bail out and drive across a run-off area. The stewards later handed Rosberg a five-second time penalty which dropped him behind both Red Bull drivers and out of podium contention.Speaking after the race Verstappen, who was sitting next to Lewis Hamilton in the post-race press conference, made a light reference to the Mercedes drivers controviersial collision in Austria. On that occasion, Rosberg had appeared to drive straight on at a corner when Hamilton attempted to pass around the outside, something which earned him a ten-second penalty after the race.?I think he was quite far so he braked really late and at one point I thought he was going to run into me, so I opened up and he didnt turn in and I had to go straighht and I had to go off track otherwise we would have crashed.dddddddddddd... Lewis knows! Verstappen said, smiling. It happened and he got a five-second penalty. So I was trying to stay within five seconds to get him back at the pitstop.Rosberg was unimpressed on the radio during the race, insisting Verstappen had moved under braking and that he had been at full steering lock at all times.When told what Rosberg had said later in the TV pen, Verstappen replied: Well I could still see his hands going straight so I dont know if thats full lock.He braked really late and as sn as he came next to me he just didnt turn in, a bit like in Austria so he just forced me to go off the track, when he easily would have made the corner.Mercedes non-executive chairman Niki Lauda agreed the penalty was understandable, saying Rosberg simply went t wide at the corner.
