New York Mets (37-48)-San Francisco Giants (40-47)
HARVEY: Harvey delivered the worst outing of the year against the D-backs, allowing a season-high five earned runs and matching a season worst with three walks. His ERA climbed to 2.27. However, the NL Cy Young Award candidate still struck out nine.LINCECUM: Lincecum's adequate performance in his last start at Cincinnati was far overshadowed by Homer Bailey's no-hitter. Lincecum lamented his inability to retire the leadoff batter in that game, as four of six Reds reached base to open innings.
GEE: Dillon Gee continued the Mets' strong pitching with seven innings of two-run ball, striking out seven and allowing just six hits on Thursday. Over the course of the past month, he's lowered his ERA by more than a full run.Zito: Zito faces the Mets for the first time this season as he returns to AT&T Park, where he is 4-1 with a 1.98 ERA in 10 starts this year. Zito has lasted seven innings in just one outing since May 8.
WHEELER: Through his first four career starts, Wheeler has pitched 21 innings with 16 strikeouts, 13 walks and four home runs. All of those rates will need to improve if he wants to realize his potential as a front-line starter._________________________________________________CAIN: Cain takes the mound after allowing seven or more runs for the fourth time this season. He's had trouble containing the big inning this season and now faces a Mets club he is 5-4 with a 3.61 ERA against during his career.
