The Mets will try to stop their slide against the Giants in San Francisco on Monday night.

The New York Mets have endured a brutal start to the second half of their season.

After a such a promising beginning, the Mets have only won two games since the All-Star Break and find themselves four games under .500 (49-53) and 8.5 games out of the last Wild Card spot.

They'll look to make the long climb back with their first series win in what seems like forever against the San Francisco Giants starting on Monday night.

Jeremy Hefner is on the bump for New York, coming into the contest with a 1-4 record and a 5.40 ERA. Hefner actually pitched well in his last start against the Washington Nationals, going six innings and only allowing two runs. Unfortunately, it was in a losing effort.

Madison Bumgarner is pitching for San Francisco. The 22-year-old has been sublime this year, compiling an 11-6 record with a 3.10 ERA. In his last three outings, the second-year man has only surrendered five earned runs in 21 innings, going 1-1 in that stretch.

The Giants come into the night tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the NL West.
