Capuano Was Good, But Lincecum Was Better

The Mets lost to the Giants by a score of 3-1, and have allowed San Francisco to even up the series at one game a piece.

  • Chris Capuano went six innings, giving up two runs on fours hits, while striking out five and walking four. Capuano's troubles were in the first inning when he got himself into a couple of bases loaded jams. The two runs allowed in the inning were the result of the Mets' defense botching two double play attempts. Capuano went on to pitch a very nice game, but he was let down by his defense in that first inning.
  • Daniel Murphy drove in the Mets only run of the game in the first inning. Carlos Beltran scored on Murphy's double to right field. It was Murphy's 18th double of the season.
  • The dynamic duo patrolling the middle infield for the Mets tonight, Ruben Tejada and Justin Turner, were unable to turn yet another double play in the seventh inning, allowing the Giants to score their third run of the game. The run was the first allowed by Bobby Parnell in his past 14.2 innings of relief.

Next up: The Mets play their final game before the All-Star break. Mike Pelfrey will get the start against Matt Cain and the Giants, tomorrow at 8:05 p.m.
