Giants 6 Mets 1
The game started on time as there was a light drizzle throughout. The announced attendance in the box score was 39,000 but obviously there were many no shows. It was a matchup of two pitching aces Noah Syndergaard against Madison Bumgarner. The Mets had won 8 in a row, but the hitting just wasn't there today. Granderson and Duda were rested as the Mets were facing a left hander. Michael Confort who has been as hot as fire went 0-5. The Mets lost 6-1.
I just hate it when a pitcher is brought in to face just one batter. The Giants had a substantial lead, but manager Bruce Bochy made several lefty right switches.
