The Mets lost the game and lose two of three in the series in San Francisco before the All-Star break. Mike Pelfrey had a solid start going 6 innings and allowing 2 runs. But he couldn’t match Matt Cain who threw 6 shutout innings. Jon Niese, in his first relief appearance, and D.J. Carrasco let the game get away in the seventh inning by allowing 2 more runs.

On offense, the Mets had 9 hits and 3 walks so they had some opportunities to score but couldn’t capitalize. They left 10 runners on base and Daniel Murphy left 3 runners in scoring position with 2 outs.

The Mets come back to New York for the break at one game over .500.
