Dillon Gee was hit early in often in the dismal nightcap to a day of bad baseball. In the first inning alone, the Mets' pitcher gave up a two-run moonshot to Pablo Sandoval and a booming triple to Nate Schierholtz, who soon came around to score. After two deceptively scoreless innings, during which the Giants continued to hit all of Gee's offerings hard, he gave up two more runs, with some assistance from Jason "Doink!" Bay in left. Despite his ineffectiveness, Gee made a valiant effort to go deep in this game, but he was felled by a two-out two-run homer by Hector Sanchez in the top of the seventh.
Madison Bumgarner, meanwhile, was as brilliant as Tim Lincecum wasn't earlier in the day, and yet the result was largely the same: a stifled Mets offense. The Mets managed to string a few hits together and even a two-out RBI single in the fourth, but otherwise were kept completely off balance, and looking generally like they'd rather be anywhere but the batters box. They managed a run off the Giants' bullpen in the eighth to put some lipstick on this pig, but watched a chance for more disappear when pinch hitter Jordany Valdespin popped out on his first MLB pitch, then Ike Davis (also pinch hitting) struck out looking on some of the worst called strikes in recorded history.
Shake it off, boys. You have a video montage to watch tomorrow!
