TOKYO (AP) — Yuki Yanagita had a home run and four RBIs as Japan scored the first nine runs and beat the MLB All-Stars 12-6 Saturday to open a 2-0 lead in the six-game exhibition series.Yanagita Enrique Hernandez Jersey , who hit a game-ending two-run homer in the opening 7-6 win, had an RBI single in the first off Erasmo Ramirez at the Tokyo Dome and hit a two-run homer in the third for a 5-0 lead.“The entire lineup was able to string together hits,” Japan manager Atsunori Inaba said. “I think we are on the right track now, and I would like to see us continue to do the same in the game tomorrow.”Yanagita singled in another run against Brian Johnson in a four-run fifth as Japan went ahead 9-0.Shogo Akiyama had three hits and three RBIs.Ramirez, the loser, allowed five runs and six hits in three innings. Johnson gave up seven runs — four earned — and six hits in 3 2/3 innings.“I thought tonight’s game actually turned early ,” MLB manager Don Mattingly said. “They were able to score early. We came out and got first and third and couldn’t score early and we lost momentum right there.”National League Rookie of the Year finalist Juan Soto homered for the second straight game, a fifth-inning home down the left-field line that drove in the first run for the MLB All-Stars, who were the home team.Enrique Hernandez hit an RBI groundout in the seventh and Kevin Pillar followed with a run-scoring single. J.T. Realmuto hit a three-run homer in the eighth against Yu Sato.“We are not going to allow these two games to dictate the series,” Pillar said.Winner Naoyuki Uwasawa struck out seven in five innings, allowing one run and four hits.The series continues Sunday with another game in Tokyo, followed by one game in Hiroshima on Tuesday and two games in Nagoya on Wednesday and Thursday. NEW YORK (AP) — Rookie Jeff McNeil’s mind swung into action even before his bat.McNeill went 4 for 4 and hit a go-ahead double with two outs in the eighth inning that sent the New York Mets over the San Francisco Giants 6-3 Tuesday night.McNeil became the first Mets player with a pair of four-hit performances within his first 27 games.The 26-year-old McNeil singled in his first three at-bats Logan Forsythe Jersey , then gave the Mets a 3-2 lead by lining a first-pitch fastball from left-hander Tony Watson (4-5) down the left field line.“I was kind of looking out over the plate. I faced him yesterday and he threw me three sliders, so I’ve seen that pitch I got a hit off it yesterday. So yeah, I was kind of expecting a fastball there and I got it,” McNeil said.McNeil is hitting .326 since making his big league debut this season. He was batting a combined .342 at Triple-A and Double-A.“He’s going and getting pitches, even good pitches and put the barrel on them,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. “We’ve seen him go down and get one and hit it back over the middle. We’ve seen him reach out over the plate against a tough lefty in Watson and slap the ball down the left field line. So. he’s a multidimensional hitter than can do a lot of things with the bat and it shows.”With the score tied at 2 , Jose Reyes led off the Mets eighth a triple off the center field fence. Watson got pinch hitter Todd Frazier on a popout and struck out Amed Rosario before McNeil delivered.Michael Conforto hit a three-run homer after the Giants intentionally walked Wilmer Flores and finished with four RBIs.Evan Longoria hit a two-run homer for the Giants, who fell to 3-5 on an 11-game road trip — they’ve scored two runs or fewer five times. Longoria’s drive was San Francisco’s first homer since Andrew McCutchen connected last Wednesday.The Giants dropped to 62-65 and are behind several teams for the second NL wild-card spot. They also may lose star catcher Buster Posey to season-ending hip surgery, though decision has been made yet.“Truth of the matter is we have talked to him about it,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. “So, we’ll continue to discuss it.”Corey Oswalt (3-2) pitched three scoreless innings. Seth Lugo worked the ninth, giving up a run when Austin Slater hit an RBI single off right fielder Jose Bautista’s glove.McNeil scored New York’s first run on a sacrifice fly by Conforto.Steven Matz allowed two runs on five hits in five innings in his second start for the Mets since returning from a strained left forearm.Matz also was robbed of a potential extra-base hit in the third by left fielder Hunter Pence. Matz hit a fly ball to the warning track and Pence made a basket catch as his hat fell off.Giants starter Chris Stratton was called up from Triple-A and allowed two runs on six hits in 6 1/3 innings.“Pitched very efficiently Kenta Maeda Jersey ,” Bochy said. “That’s an area that he was trying to get better at and improve at and get back to where he was. And he did that. Threw a real nice game.”TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: Posey didn’t play after catching all 13 innings Monday night. … RHP Dereck Rodriguez did some running and will participate in pitcher’s fielding practice Wednesday. He is set to be activated from the disabled list to start Friday against Texas.Mets: 3B David Wright (shoulder, back) continued his rehab by going 1 for 4 and playing seven innings in the field for Class A St. Lucie. … OF Jay Bruce (left hip) went 3 for 4 and played right field for St. Lucie.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Casey Kelly (0-1, 1.69 ERA) will make his second start in place of RHP Dereck Rodriguez.
