SAN FRANCISCO, July 10 (UPI) -- A grand slam by Marlon Byrd Tuesday lifted the New York Mets to a 10-6 road win over the San Francisco Giants.

Byrd hit the first pitch he saw from Jake Dunning in the eighth inning into the left-field seats to break the game open and give the Mets a back-to-back wins over the slumping World Series champs. The Giants lost for the seventh time in eight tries.

Anthony Recker added a two-run home run for the Mets and Andrew Brown also drove in a pair of runs. Daniel Murphy's sacrifice fly in the eighth put New York ahead 6-5 and set the stage for Byrd's insurance slam.

Scott Rice (4-5) picked up the win in relief of Dillon Gee.

Jose Mijares (0-2) took the loss after putting the go-ahead run on base in the eighth. Pablo Sandoval drove in two runs for San Francisco.
