In the third Kepler hit an RBI single to give the Twins a 1-0 lead.  In the fifth a hit-by-pitch tied the game at one.  Alonso drew an RBI walk, Cano drew an RBI walk and Conforto drew an RBI walk.  Ramos hit a two-run single and it was 6-1 Mets.  In the seventh Conforto hit a two-run single to push the lead to 8-1 Mets.  McNeil hit an RBI single and it was 9-1 Mets.  In the eighth Schoop hit an RBI double, Buxton hit an RBI triple and Cave hit an RBI single to cut the lead to 9-4.  Willians Astudillo hit into a double play and a run scored to make it a 9-5 game.  In the ninth Garver hit a solo homerun cutting the lead to 9-6.
