The Mets couldn’t overcome a solid game from Tim Lincecum who went 6 innings and only allowed 1 run. Chris Capuano stayed close to him and pitched well enough to win on most nights but going against Lincecum is a different story. Capuano also went 6 innings and allowed only 2 runs. Bobby Parnell pitched the seventh inning and allowed another run to the Giants on 2 hits.
The Mets had no offense going at all in this game. They only had 4 hits and 5 walks as a team. The only run they scored was on a pair of doubles in the first inning by Carlos Beltran and Daniel Murphy. That was the offense for the game.
The Mets and Giants will play the rubber game of the series on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball.
