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.
- 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.
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.
