Mets don't have the 'Wright' stuff to sweep Giants
With their brooms cocked and ready to finish off a sweep of The SF Giants, The Mets fell just short, losing 6-5 in disappointing fashion. Facing two-time reigning Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum, the Mets crawled their way back from a 5-0 deficit, taking a 5-4 lead in the 7th inning, on a sac fly by David Wright. But after a lead off double in the 9th by Jason Bay, Wright promptly was thrown out of the game by home plate umpire for arguing a called third strike, his 4th k of the game. Ike Davis and Jeff Francoeur also struck out, leaving Bay stranded, and some Met's fans disappointed. The Mets almost overcame another poor start by Oliver Perez, who walked seven batters in 3-1/3 innings, giving up 4 runs (3 earned).
