CINCINNATI — Jeff McNeil hit a tiebreaking single in the 11th inning, Kevin Pillar added a three-run homer and the New York Mets went deep seven times to pull out a wild 15-11 win over the slumping Cincinnati Reds.

Michael Conforto connected twice, including a solo shot that capped a five-run outburst in the 11th as the NL East leaders handed Cincinnati its fourth straight loss to open the second half.

New York shook off a season-high four errors — all in the first two innings — in a game that lasted 4 hours, 45 minutes.

Three were committed by shortstop Luis Guillorme, subbing for injured Francisco Lindor.

Mets manager Luis Rojas served the first game of his two-game suspension.
