MLB: Giants outlast Mets in All-Star pitching matchup

By Craig Filazzola, WSOE Sports Director

Two of the NL’s best pitchers squared off Saturday afternoon, as Johan Santana and Matt Cain took the mound for their respected teams. Neither All-Star got a decision in the San Francisco Giants’ 5-4, 10-inning win over the New York Mets.  Bengie Molina hit a solo home run in the top of the 10th to guide the Giants to victory.

Santana started the game for the Mets with a 13-8 record, 3.00 ERA and 138 hits allowed in 153 innings.  However, he struggled in the contest by surrendering four runs on nine hits in 6.2 innings. 

Cain performed slightly better in his 7.1 innings, yielding three runs on six hits.  The Giants starter came in 12-4 with a 2.44 ERA, third best in the NL.   

David Wright left the game in the fourth inning after getting hit in the head with a pitch.  The magnitude of the injury has yet to be determined.
