The San Francisco Giants Report

by Bill Chuck on September 19, 2013

Heading into the bottom of the 8th at Citi Field, the Giants held a 4-0 lead over the Mets.

Heading into the bottom of the 9th at Citi Field, the Giants held a 4-1 lead over the Mets.

Heading back to the hotel after the game, the Giants were shaking their head after a 5-4 loss to the Mets.

The Mets rally was led by a walkoff two-run single by Josh Satin, a pinch hit double by Zach Lutz, and an RBI single by Juan Centeno, making his major league debut.

If you have heard of all these guys, stop reading Billy-Ball and go out and buy a life, or least get some fresh air.

Giants closer Sergio Romo (4-8), blew his fifth save in 40 chances as the Giants clinched a losing season for the first time since 2008.
