Game #150: Giants 8, Mets 5

Unlike tonight's four-hour affair, this blog post will be significantly shorter.

Zack Wheeler couldn't find the plate for five innings and a Mets rally came up short as they fell to the Giants 8-5.

The Bad Stuff:
  • Wheeler's final line: 5 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 6 BB, 3 K, 107 pitches.
  • Sean Henn (who?), Gonzalez Germen, and Jeurys Familia (remember him?) allowed in the other four runs, with Henn taking the loss.
  • New York hit 3-11 with RISP and stranded nine, including leaving the bases loaded to end the bottom of the 9th. Lucas Duda, who had the chance to win it with a grand slam, popped out in foul ground.
The Good Stuff:
  • Ruben Tejada was 1-3 with a double, two runs, and a walk.
  • Daniel Murphy hit his 36th double of the year and drove in a run.
  • Eric Young stole his 39th base of the year and 31st with the Mets.
Final Analysis:
Meh. What else do you want me to see? Wheeler was bad tonight. The bullpen was bad tonight. And where were those five runs during every Matt Harvey start ever? Meh, I say. Meh.
