Holy Molina: Giants rock Mets
Rocky fifth dooms Mets
All was going well for Oliver Perez in the series opener in San Francisco -- until the fifth inning. After allowing a two-run homer, the Mets made two errors behind him during a nine-run nightmare. Only two of Perez's eight runs were earned as Barry Zito held the Mets down to earn the victory.

Series at a glance:
Zito solid in third win
Bengie Molina took matters into his own hands in the fifth inning of a series opener with the Mets. The catcher was the third San Francisco Giant to hit two home runs in one inning, punctuating a nine-run frame. Rich Aurilia also homered as Barry Zito cruised to his third win of the season.
