The Mets could have stayed home today and saved us the pain of having to watch this bloodbath.
Madison Bumgarner was simply brilliant, allowing only two hits and three baserunners the whole game. Before David Wright's broken-bat single in the seventh, the Giants' starter had retired twelve Mets in a row. Bumgarner threw only 94 pitches the whole game. It was not pretty to watch.
Bartolo Colon's performance was not nearly as dominant. The Mets' starter gave up six earned runs on eight hits, with three of them coming on a two-run homer from Hunter Pence and a solo shot off the bat of Brandon Belt. Colon made it into the fifth, but Pence, Buster Posey, and Pablo Sandoval drove in three more runs in that inning to end his day. Carlos Torres and Dana Eveland came in and gave up two more homers to Buster Posey and Pence (again) to make the game a true laugher.
