NEW YORK (AP) - Pablo Sandoval drove in three runs with three hits, including an RBI double with two outs in the ninth inning that sent the San Francisco Giants over the New York Mets 4-3 Monday.

The Giants took three of four at Citi Field. The Mets lost a home series for the first time since June 10-12 against Milwaukee.

Sandoval hit a two-run double in the third, then delivered again in the ninth.

Gregor Blanco singled with two outs off Jenrry Mejia (5-4) and stole second, and Buster Posey drew his fourth walk of the game. Sandoval followed by slicing a ground-rule double into the seats down the left-field line. Mejia had allowed just one earned run since June 18.
