Mets 2, Giants 7, Game 2: New York Drops 2nd Leg Of Doubleheader

The New York Mets' second game Monday night went much like their first. They lost by five runs to the San Francisco Giants, as the offense once again couldn't get going. New York has now lost five of its last six games after starting the year 7-2. They are now 1-2 in their four-game series with the Giants, with one game still to be played at a later date.

Dillon Gee gave up 12 hits, and seven earned runs to earn the loss. San Francisco took a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning, with two runs coming on a Pablo Sandoval home run. The Giants scored another two runs on a Gregor Blanco double to deep left field in the fourth. The Mets finally got on the board in the bottom of the inning on a Justin Turner single to score David Wright.

Gee gave up another two earned runs in the top of the seventh before he was finally pulled for Manny Acosta. Daniel Murphy sent in the Mets' final run of the game in the eighth inning on a sac fly off of Javier Lopez, but by that point New York was down 7-1 and in no position to make a comeback. Madison Bumgarner started for the Giants, and gave up just three hits and one earned run in seven innings of work.
