The New York Mets were defeated by the S.F. Giants 7-2 in game-two of Monday night’s twi-light double header.  With the loss the Mets have now lost 8 out of their last 12, dropping to 8-8 on the season:

Dillon Gee started for the Mets allowing seven runs on a career high 12 hits over 6 2/3 innings of work:

The Giants got to Gee in the top of the first when Pablo Sandoval absolutely crushed a high fastball deep into the seats in right field to give S.F. the early 2-0 lead. The Giants plated one more run in the frame on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Hector Sanchez.  With S.F. leading 5-1, Sanchez chased Gee from the game with a two-out, two-run jack in the top of the seventh.

MAJOR LEAGUE DEBUT: Jordany Valdespin made his major league debut as a pinch hitter with the bases loaded and one out in the eighth inning.  Valdespin swung at the first pitch he saw, popping out to second base.

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGH IT COULDN’T GET WORSE: Like game one, the Mets failed to get the big hit.  They left eight runners on base hitting just 2-for-7 with runners in scoring position. Ike Davis, who stranded eight runners on base in game one, entered the game as a pinch hitter with the bases loaded and struck out to end the inning; lifting his total to 12 runners left on base during the double header.

REYES RETURNS:  Jose Reyes makes his return to Citi Field tomorrow at 7:05 pm as the Mets start a three-game series with the Marlins.  Johan Santana will take on Josh Johnson.
