Mets vs Giants Post Game Recap 7/30
The Mets were able to pick up the first game of the series in San Fran beating the Giants in extra innings by a score of 8-7.
Starter Jeremy Hefner had a tough night on mound for the Mets while picking up the no decision. Hefner went 5.2 innings allowing ten hits, three walks, four runs, and had five strikeouts.
Bobby Parnell was unable to close the game for the Mets despite the blown save going to Josh Edgin who later got his first win of the season. Parnell was only able to get one out while allowing two hits, one run, and then was pulled by Terry Collins.
Manny Acosta would pick up the save in extra innings for his 1st of the season, but made it very interesting allowing one hit, two walks, and one run.
Offensively for the Mets it was the Scott Hairston show, as Hairston went 2 for 5 with the game tying two-run homerun in the 8th inning, and then the go ahead solo homerun in the 10th giving him 14 now for the season.
Ike Davis had another rough night at the plate going 0 for 4 with four strikeouts getting himself a golden sombrero.
Justin Turner was able to rekindle some of last years clutch magic with a pinch hit double in the 8th inning scoring Jason Bay.
Mets will look to make it three straight wins as Matt Harvey will be making his second start in the majors against Tim Lincecum (4-11, 5.88).
