So…thats what an ace looks like. Mets got front row seats to a show of dominance tonight, striking out 12 times through 7 shout out innings. To his credit, Chris Capuano kept the game scoreless through 6 innings but didnt know that Pat Burrell carried the label of “Met Killer” and cashed in on the well earned nick name with an RBI single in the 6th to put the Giants in front. For s***s and giggles, Mike Fontenot added an RBI single in the 7th inning. In true Met fashion, the only threat came in the bottom of the 6th where down by one, Carlos Beltran lead off with a single. Ike Davis battled and managed to get a single up the middle to put runners on the corners with 0 out. Naturally, Tim would get Ronny Paulino to pop out in foul ground and get the next two hitters to strike out. For the second time in a row, the Mets were in prime position to tie the game with a sac fly and tanked. Mets have lost 5 of their last 6 and are 8.5 games out of the division. At least Jose Reyes got a peak at a potential suitor for his talents in July.
