The New York Mets and San Francisco Giants take the field in game two of their series at AT&T Park.
The Mets won't be challenging for the National League East crown but if you look at the injuries sustained by the rotation they are playing as well as can be expected. They are capable of beating any team and gave San Francisco a run for their money in a 4-2 defeat on Friday. Jon Niese held his own on the mound against a very strong offensive squad with two runs plated in seven innings pitched. Carlos Torres wasn't as good with a homer and two runs scored saddling his team with the loss. The offense mustered a two run homer off the bat of Daniel Murphy in the 7th that gave the Mets a short lived tie. Red hot Bartolo Colon looks to contain the San Francisco attack Saturday. Colon has won three in a row where he has allowed a total of four runs on 16 hits over 22.1 innings.

If you look at where San Francisco was a year ago and fast forward to the present it looks like an imposter wearing Giants uniforms in 2013. The Giants have hit and pitched their way to the top of the National League West and have not shown any sign of slowing. They didnt slow in the series opener versus the Mets behind a strong effort from Matt Cain who gave up a two run homer over seven frames. The offense received a homer and two RBI's from Buster Posey while Brandon Crawford knocked in two more. San Francisco sends veteran Tim Hudson to the mound who has not given up a run in consecutive victories. On the season Hudson is 6-2 with a 1.75 ERA in ten outings.
Colon has been a handful so the Giants can't look past him but Hudson has been just as good which has me looking at the bats of San Francisco as the difference...
