Unhappy Recap: Giants 3 Mets 0

Momentum is only as good as the next day's starting pitcher. And when your next day's starting pitcher is Tom Glavine you can expect to be in an early hole. Glavine gave up two runs in the first inning. It was the fourth straight start in which he'd allowed at least 2 runs in the first two innings. After that he was pretty good but it was too late.

The Mets could not hit Barry Zito. They put runners on in 6 of the 7 innings against Zito but couldn't get the hit to bring anyone around. His curveball was awesome fooling several hitters, but he also struck out guys with the fastball. He was awesome.

First time the Mets were shut out this season. Baltimore, Detroit and Philadelphia still have not been shut out this year.

Wisely, Bochy brought in Hennessey instead of Benitez to save the game.

Gulliermo Mota came back from his steroid suspension and according to Gary Cohen the reaction was "muted, but decidedly negative." Mota pitched two innings, allowed 1 hit and struck out two.

The Mets 4-game winning streak was snapped. It was their fourth 4-game streak of the year, all of which ended at 4. But they do not have any losing streaks longer than 2 games.

Paul LoDuca got his 1000th career hit in the game.
