Game Wrap 8/20/2016: Mets 9 Giants 5

Matt Moore struggled with his command early and threw 92 pitches in 5 innings.  Jake Peavy relieved him and the roof caved in as the Mets built an insurmountable lead.  Key Lines:

Denard Span- 2 for 5, 2B, HR(7).  BA= .274.  Span is 9 for 14 in his last 3 games and his hitting .345 for the month of August.

Angel Pagan- 1 for 2.  BA= .299.  Pagan extended his hitting streak to 18 games before leaving with a groin strain.  He's DTD with the hope he will be ready for the Dodgers series on 8/23.

Hunter Pence- 2 for 3, BB.  Pence now has 2 hits in each of his last 3 games.

Matt Moore- 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 4.18.  Moore seemed to settle down a bit in the 4'th and 5'th innings, but by that time the pitch count was up there.  Maybe he could have gone 1 more inning?

Jake Peavy- 2 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 0 BB, 4 K's.  ERA= 5.55.  Peavy had been pitching OK in relief.  There are 2 pitchers the Giants have yet to find replacements for in the bullpen, Jeremy Affeldt and Yusmeiro Petit.  It would seem Peavy is not that guy either.


The Dodgers were once again crushed by the Cincinnati Reds 11-1 so the Giants maintain their 0.5 game lead in the NL West.  Go Reds!


Jeff Samardzija tries to build on his recent success today facing Thor.

  1. Sigh. Peavy did well his first 6 innings in relief. Looked like he'd found a home. I guess not.
