Pitching Johan Santana had a tough go of it against the Giants and was tagged [...]
Lincecum, Schmincecum… That’s all the Mets had to say as they completed their biggest comeback of the season and beat the Giants 8-6 on Friday night.

Livan Hernandez started and he was opposed by Tim Lincecum in what looked to be a major league mismatch, and after the first two [...]

Pitching Jon Niese started the game and quickly got into [...]

Frankie Rodriguez also came through with two solid innings in the 9th and [...]
