• The Mets made baseball history Monday night when they beat the Giants, 4-3, in 16 innings. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Mets became the first team in Major League history to play four games of 15 or more innings prior to the All-Star break. They also took a 4-3 loss at Miami in 15 innings on April 29, a 2-1 loss vs. Miami in 20 innings on June 8 and a 5-4 loss vs. Arizona in 15 innings last Thursday.
The Mets' latest extra-inning game came after they flew Sunday from Milwaukee to San Francisco.
"They're getting tired, very tired," Collins said of his players before Tuesday night's game against San Francisco.
• Right-hander Scott Atchison (sore right groin) pitched one inning Monday for the Rookie-level Gulf Coast Mets during a rehab assignment. He allowed two hits and one earned run and struck out two. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list June 19.
