NEW YORK (AP) – Patrick Mazeika hit a tiebreaking homer leading off the seventh inning in his first major league game this season, and the New York Mets took advantage of some sloppy Seattle defense to beat the Mariners 5-4 on Saturday night.

Starling Marte tripled, doubled, singled and scored three times for the Mets, who squandered a 4-0 lead when Jesse Winker tied it with a three-run homer off Chasen Shreve in the top of the seventh.

Mazeika, batting ninth, laced the first pitch from reliever Andrés Muñoz (1-1) inside the right-field foul pole for his second career home run. New York’s third-string catcher was called up from the minors Friday when top backstop James McCann went on the injured list with a broken bone in his left wrist.

Adam Ottavino (2-1) pitched a scoreless eighth, retiring Ty France with a runner on third to end the inning.

Edwin Díaz struck out all three batters in the ninth for his eighth save, fanning Winker with a 100 mph fastball for the final out to the delight of 37,148 fans who waited out a rain delay at the start on a misty night.

Winker was booed throughout and waved to the crowd after rounding the bases on his home run – part of a back-and-forth with Citi Field fans that dates back to his days with Cincinnati.
