The Mets snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, allowing four runs in the ninth inning en route to a 6-5 loss to the last-place Giants. For the third time in the last four series, the Mets had a chance for a sweep, only to lose the last game.
- Plenty of blame to go around here in a game the Mets should have won. Jeurys Familia, pitching for the third straight day because he was used yesterday when the team was up five runs, had nothing and was unable to close the door when handed a 3-2 lead.
- Even without his best stuff, Familia coaxed a groundball to the third baseman that should have been a game-ending double play. But Wilmer Flores threw wildly to second base and did not get even one out on the play. A single, walk and a double then resulted in four runs and a loss.
- Flores almost redeemed himself in the ninth, with a blast that just missed being a homer. Instead, it was a two-run double that cut the deficit to a single run. However, Kevin Plawecki squelched the comeback with a dribbler in front of the plate for the final out.
- Tommy Milone acquitted himself well in his Mets debut, allowing 2 ER in 5 IP. He also had an RBI single.
