Meet the Mets
Curtis Granderson hit two home runs, but Zack Wheeler lasted just 3.2 innings, and the Mets lost to the Giants 6-4. It was New York's sixth straight defeat during what started out as a promising 11-game road trip.
Terry Collins spoke about how it's hard to succeed in the majors when you make adjustments as often as d'Arnaud has been doing at the plate.

Gonzalez Germen is getting closer to full health, and he's likely to take Dana Eveland's spot in the bullpen when he is activated off of the disabled list.
