Mets vs. Giants Recap: California Dreamin’ for a single day

Mets smack 20 hits in blowout win against Giants. The Mets’ four days in Hollywood felt positively Lynchian, and the early part of their Friday didn’t start out very feel-good either. Reports surfaced that the team is ready to accept the reality of the standings and be sellers at the trade deadline, while their opening day shortstop apparently requested a trade after losing his job to the Mets’ once and (sadly) future shortstop. So then the Mets turned around and put it all together for one rare and pleasant day, pounding out 20 hits on their way to an easy 11-4 victory. ...

The Mets release some frustrations against the Giants. The buzzards were circling overhead in the late innings—oh wait, those were seagulls—but this time the half-empty stadium was not the result of fickle, happy fans beating freeway traffic, but of the Mets turning the game into a blowout on the winning side, as they defeated the Giants 11-4. After exchanging runs in the first inning—the Mets on a Wilmer Flores single, the Giants on a Brandon Belt RBI double—the Mets unleashed some pent-up frustrations in the top of the second. The offense unloaded on Giant starter Ty Blach in the...
