The Mets lost today's matinee in a crushing manner by a score of 4-3 to the San Francisco Giants. The Mets gave up two leads today and could not manage to eek out the final game of this series. They will be happy to not see the Giants again until next year, as they finish their season series with them, winning just one of seven games.
Daniel Murphy put the Mets out in front early with a two-run home run in the first inning, but Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run double off of Dillon Gee in the third to even the game up at two. The Mets took the lead back in the fifth off of a David Wright RBI single but that's where the scoring for the home team stopped.
Jeurys Familia was wild out of the bullpen and saw a run cross the plate on his watch via a wild pitch and the Giants were able to score their fourth and winning run off of Jenrry Mejia in the form of another Sandoval RBI double.
Today's game had a little bit of everything, including a Terry Collins ejection for arguing balls and strikes, and the Mets will try to put this one behind them quickly as they head to Washington tomorrow hoping to get back on track.
