NEW YORK -- Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford earned his first Gold Glove last season, enhancing his reputation as a guy with a rocket arm. Nathan Beaulieu Canadiens Jersey Authentic .He had been pretty sharp in the field this year, too -- until Friday night.Crawford made three errors for the first time in his career, all on throws. His wild toss in the eighth inning let the go-ahead run score and sent San Francisco to its season-worst sixth straight loss, 3-2 to the New York Yankees.Three errors? Nah, its not happened before, Crawford said.Just three kind of weird plays, all different kind of throws that happened to get away from me, he said.The Giants held the best record in the majors at the All-Star break, but havent won since. The NL West leaders also lost catcher Buster Posey, who fouled a ball off his right foot and left with a bruise. X-rays were negative and he was listed as day to day.Im just sore right now. Well have to see tomorrow, he said.Giants ace Madison Bumgarner gave up two runs in seven innings. Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka pitched six shutout innings, allowing four hits.The Giants nicked Dellin Betances in the seventh, pulling within 2-1 on a walk, a double by Denard Span and a wild pitch. That ended a streak of 31 scoreless innings by Yankees relievers.A double by Giants pinch-hitter Mac Williamson off Andrew Miller (6-1) tied it in the eighth. Aroldis Chapman closed in the ninth for his 20th save in 21 chances, working around a leadoff double.We hit a couple of balls hard, but we didnt get a break, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. And thats the way it goes. When youre in winning streaks, everything goes right. Right now, its not going well for us. But still, you make your breaks. Weve got to tighten up and play crisper ball.The Giants made four errors overall, helping the Yankees win for the fifth time in six games.Chase Headley opened the eighth with a swinging bunt for a single off Josh Osich (1-2) and Mark Teixeira walked.Austin Romine followed with a grounder to Crawford, who tagged second, spun around and made a hard, high throw that glanced off the glove of first baseman Brandon Belt. Headley kept running and beat Belts throw home.Crawford made a poor throw home on a relay in the first inning. In the seventh, his throw to first on Carlos Beltrans single sailed into the camera well.The first one, I dont know if I caught it two-seam or something, but it took off, got out of my hand, Crawford said. The next one took kind of a long hop, which I didnt see happening on Beltrans ball. Kind of had to sit back a little bit and then he was down the line, so I had to put a little extra on the throw and threw it a little too high.The misfire in the eighth was the most damaging.And the last one, I dont know really what other play I had. I felt most comfortable taking it myself, and I think my only other option would have been a glove flip, he said. I thought, worst-case scenario, we probably wouldve had guys on first and third and one out. Throw got up a little bit. I guess Belt kind of lost it also. He said so. That didnt help. Hopefully, it doesnt happen again.A spirited crowd of 45,304 also included lots of Giants fans, and the rival rooters spent much of the game loudly cheering, often at the same time. There was a truce when a marriage proposal was shown on the scoreboard in-between innings -- he wore a Giants hat, she wore a Yankees cap and said yes to a ring.HES DONE WHAT?Starlin Castro hit an RBI double in the first inning and later singled twice against Bumgarner. Castro is 14 for 27 (.519) lifetime off the star lefty.Thats what I was wondering. Has he hit me before like that? Bumgarner said.Thats pretty good. Not a whole lot sticks out, but he swung the bat tonight, for sure, he said. Im not a big video guy, so I dont watch any of that. I just try to read the game and adjust to it appropriately.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) and INF Joe Panik (concussion) didnt start for Triple-A Sacramento.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (9-5, 4.05) walked a season-high four in his last start vs. San Diego. He is 0-1 with a 6.92 ERA in three career games against the Yankees.Yankees: RHP Ivan Nova (7-5, 4.92) pitched a shutout in 2013 in his only career start vs. the Giants.

NEW YORK -- New York Mets manager Terry Collins had a message for his players after Fridays 6-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies: Lighten up.After the Mets lost their third straight game, Collins held a rare meeting and implored his players to stop putting so much pressure on themselves.He even ordered music to be played in the clubhouse, which is generally taboo after losses. When reporters entered the clubhouse postgame, Bon Jovis You Give Love a Bad Name was blaring over speakers.The Mets (53-49) went hitless in eight at-bats with runners in scoring position Friday, dropping their season average in those situations to an MLB-worst .202. Pending the outcome of Washingtons game at San Francisco, the Mets have dropped a season-high-matching seven games out of first place in the National League East and two games out of a wild-card spot.First of all, we have a good team, Collins said. Were going through a rough time right now. We havent hit with runners in scoring position. Everybody knows it. Weve got to quit rubbing it in our faces every day. Weve got to lighten it up a little bit. Weve still got a lot of games to play. Were not dead. Were still in the hunt. We need to loosen up a little bit all the way around. ... Im a little tired of seeing long faces. We need to lighten it up, have some fun and get back to the way we can play the game.These players, theyre smart guys. Theyre getting it from their friends, everybody else -- You guys arent hitting with runners in scoring position. And so it starts to build and starts to build, and all of a sudden, they go up there, annd their heads are not where it needs to be because theyre worried about making an out or not getting a hit. Maurice Richard Canadiens Jersey Authentic. Collins implored the Mets to focus on the positives despite mounting injuries. Center fielder Juan Lagares landed on the disabled list Friday afternoon with a partial tear of a ligament in his left thumb. He will require surgery that will sideline him for six weeks. Third baseman Jose Reyes has been out since Tuesday with an intercostal muscle strain on his left side.We put Juan on the DL today. We dont know about Jose; he may have to go on, Collins said. So I just think a lot of these things pile up. I just said, We need to lighten it up around here. Weve still got good players. Weve still got good pitching. Were, what, fourth or fifth in the league in pitching? Or third in the league in pitching? Weve just got to quit worrying about all the bad things and start thinking about some of the good things and get ourselves ready for tomorrow night.Said second baseman Neil Walker: This is not the time of year to panic. The outside expectation is that we have to win every series. This is tough baseball. Ive played in a wild-card race for the last three years (with the Pittsburgh Pirates), and weve gone through these exact same things in July and August. So the thing that you cant do is panic. You cant get too out of control. You cant get down too much. You just have to try to take advantage of every opportunity that you can.
