Meet the Mets

The Mets made the journey out to the Bay Area for the start of their series with the Giants, but they apparently lost their offense along the way. Though Zack Wheeler was excellent again, the Mets couldn’t muster even a single run in San Francisco. To make matters worse, Daniel Zamora, Robert Gsellman and the rest of the bullpen completely melted down in the eighth inning, giving up six runs and allowing the Giants to cruise to a 7-0 victory.
