Marlon Byrd's two-out grand slam capped a five-run eighth inning and the New York Mets beat the San Francisco Giants 10-6 on Tuesday for their third consecutive win.

A day after needing 16 innings to top the Giants in a game that ended at 12:42 a.m., the Mets squandered leads of 3-2 and 5-3 but held off the slumping World Series champs by scoring five times against the Giants bullpen.

Omar Quintanilla had three hits for the Mets while Byrd and David Wright added two apiece. Wright drew a two-out walk before Byrd's home run off San Francisco reliever Jake Dunning.

Marco Scutaro singled twice for the Giants but was thrown out at home trying to score from first base on Pablo Sandoval's double in the first.
