Johan Santana was excellent for eight innings, and was undone by one lousy inning from Framcisco Rodriguez. Ike Davis drove in Jason Bay with the go-ahead run in the tenth and, that time, Rodriguez was able to hang on to the lead. With it the Mets salvaged a win from the four-game series with San Francisco and set off for a series in Arizona.

Poem by Howard Megdal

Masterful Johan, but K-Rod faltered
A sure Giant victory is umpire-altered
Cuzzi makes calls that both sides dislike
Mets saved in the tenth by a doubling Ike
