Giants 3 - Mets 0
from Wednesday, May 30, 2007

It started off looking like a really bad night for Tom Glavine as the Giants beat him up for 3 runs on 7 hits and a walk through the first three innings. Credit to Glavine for righting the ship and allowing only 2 hits and a walk over the next four innings. Unfortunately, though, it only earned him his second tough loss in a row as the Mets suffered their first shutout loss of the season.

Barry Zito had a very good curveball and home plate umpire Bob Davidson -- who managed not to call a balk last night -- was calling everything even close to the plate a strike. It wasn't a good combination for Mets fans last night. I'll give the Mets offense some credit for making Zito throw over 120 pitches to notch 7 shutout innings, but it wasn't enough to make a difference for the Mets, nor for Glavine's quest for 300 wins.

Guillermo Mota had a nice return from his steroid suspension, giving the Mets 2 shutout innings in relief of Glavine.

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.
