NEW YORK (AP) — Jacob deGrom fumed about not getting a called strike three. Then again , when the New York Mets face Madison Bumgarner, things never seem to go well.Bumgarner hit an RBI double for the only earned run off the Mets ace and topped him on the mound too, pitching the San Francisco Giants past New York 3-1 on Thursday.In his first appearance in New York since tossing a four-hit shutout in the 2016 NL wild-card game, Bumgarner (5-5) gave up five hits and went eight innings to match his longest start of the season. He struck out eight and walked none.“We’ve seen him do that a few times in his career where he pitches a beautiful game and does something with the bat and helped himself,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said.Bumgarner extended his scoreless streak at Citi Field to 33 innings before Todd Frazier homered to begin the seventh. The big lefty is 7-0 with a 1.42 ERA in eight starts against the Mets — he’s 5-0 with an 0.59 ERA in six starts at the Mets’ park.“He has pitched well here,” Bochy said. “I don’t know how to explain that. He pitches well in a lot of places. It seems like he has done some of his best work here.”The Giants led 1-0 and had a runner at first with two outs in the fourth when an 0-2 pitch to Nick Hundley was called a ball. DeGrom (8-8) and catcher Devin Mesoraco both started to walk off the field, but plate umpire Tony Randazzo called a ball on a pitch that a computerized TV strike zone showed well inside the box.Hundley eventually walked and Bumgarner made it 2-0 with a double down the left field line, past the range of third baseman Todd Frazier.As deGrom went to back up the plate, he began yelling at plate umpire Tony Randazzo.“I told him he can’t miss it,” deGrom said. “I thought it was a strike and you can’t miss that.”After getting the final out of the inning, deGrom flung some paper cups in the dugout along with his glove in frustration.“I don’t know if I felt like I had a good chance of getting the barrel on that,” Bumgarner said with a laugh. “A swinging bat, that’s a dangerous bat.”It was Bumgarner’s 57th career RBI and 34th career extra-base hit. Both totals are second-most behind active pitchers Ron Santo Jersey , behind Adam Wainwright.DeGrom went six innings and exited with a major league-best 1.71 ERA. He allowed two runs overall on four hits, striking out 10 with a season-high four walks.DeGrom has often wound up with losses and no-decisions this season because the Mets haven’t scored much for him. He appears to be in a three-way race for the NL Cy Young Award with Philadelphia’s Aaron Nola and Washington’s Max Scherzer — Nola outdueled Scherzer at Nationals Park on Thursday afternoon.Evan Longoria hit a solo homer in the eighth inning as the Giants concluded a 4-6 road trip.The Giants manufactured their first run in the third when rookie Steven Duggar walked, stole second and advanced on a groundout. He scored when Mesoraco let a pitch to Longoria go off his glove for a passed ball.Frazier hit his 14th homer in the seventh to make it 2-1. Bumgarner then hit Bautista with a pitch and gave up a single to Jeff McNeil but got Kevin Plawecki to hit into a double play and struck out Michael Conforto on a full-count fastball.Bumgarner entered the eighth at 95 pitches. He struck out pinch-hitter Jose Reyes, made a nifty snag of Amed Rosario’s comebacker to the mound and retired Austin Jackson on a groundout.Will Smith worked around a two-out walk to Jose Bautista in the ninth for his 11th save in 13 opportunities.TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: C Buster Posey didn’t play. He is expected to catch Friday’s series opener against Texas. Posey is considering getting season-ending hip surgery. … RHP Jeff Samardzija (right shoulder inflammation) pitched four scoreless innings in a rehab start for Double-A Richmond Wednesday. Bochy said Samardzija will be evaluated Friday in San Francisco but will likely need another rehab start.Mets: Mesoraco left the game after the fourth inning with neck stiffness. He was sent for an MRI. … RF Jay Bruce (sore right hip), on the disabled list since June 19 is expected to be activated for Friday’s series opener against Washington. Manager Mickey Callaway said Bruce will see time at first base and right field. … Third base coach Glenn Sherlock was away from the team due to a family matter. He is expected to return Friday.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Dereck Rodriguez (6-1, 2.25 ERA) is set to come off the disabled list and will oppose Texas RHP Drew Hutchison (2-2, 5.71) on Friday in San Francisco.Mets: LHP Jason Vargas (3-8, 7.67 ERA) faces LHP Gio Gonzalez (7-10, 4.51 ERA) on Friday night to open a three-game series at home against Washington. The Boston Red Sox will try to accomplish something in Game 2 of the 2018 World Series that they haven't achieved yet in the postseason.After taking Game 1 of the series over the Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston is looking to win two consecutive home games for the first time in three series.The Red Sox dropped one of the first two contests in the ALDS and ALCS, which gives the Dodgers hope heading into Game 2 they can steal a game before heading back home for Game 3 Friday.David Price, who reversed his postseason struggles in Game 5 of the ALCS, opposes Hyun-Jin Ryu in the pitching matchup , but as we saw in Game 1, the relief pitchers on both sides could end up as the most important pitchers to toe the rubber in Game 2. Game 2 InformationStart Time:8:09 p.m. ETTV:FoxLive Stream:Fox Sports Go or Fox Sports app. PredictionBoston 7, Los Angeles 4Once again, the Boston bats will be on display at Fenway Park.In Game 1, Alex Cora's side racked up 11 hits, seven of which came off Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi set the tone at the top of the order, as they combined for five hits and five runs.Elise Amendola/Associated PressBenintendi went 4-for-5 in his World Series debut, and he'll continue his early quest to be World Series MVP in Game 2 with a pair of base knocks.The Boston hitters will have to be patient at the plate against Ryu, who conceded seven earned runs in 14.1 innings spread across three starts in the NLDS and NLCS.Los Angeles hopes it can get at least a six-inning outing of Ryu similar to the one he produced in Game 1 of the NLDS.But that will be difficult against a Boston lineup that found success against Kershaw immediately in the World Series opener.Even if Betts and Benintendi struggle, the Red Sox possess a handful of batters further down the order who are more than capable of reaching base and putting Ryu under pressure.Rafael Devers and Sandy Leon, who combined for three hits in Game 1, will be the difference-makers at the bottom of the order, and they'll set up Betts and Benintendi for RBI opportunities in their second and third at-bats.The biggest question mark for the Red Sox entering Game 2 is the performance of Price Adam Engel Jersey , who earned his first postseason victory as a starter in Game 5 of the ALCS.He doesn't have to be perfect, but he needs to produce a solid outing of five or six innings to set up his team's relief pitchers.The Boston left-hander will do enough to keep the Red Sox in the lead through five innings, but he'll have a tough time getting Manny Machado out.Machado continued his terrific postseason with three RBI in Game 1, and he'll drive in at least two more runs with Justin Turner and David Freese getting on base in front of him.David J. Phillip/Associated PressOnce the starters exit, Game 2 will come down to which bullpen performs better, and based off Game 1, the edge belongs to Boston.Ryan Brasier was the only Boston reliever to be charged with an earned run Tuesday, while three of the four Los Angeles pitchers out of the bullpen gave up an earned run.Brasier, Joe Kelly, Eduardo Rodriguez and Rick Porcello will bridge the gap between Price and closer Craig Kimbrel while the Red Sox tack on two insurance runs in the final few innings.In the ninth inning, Kimbrel will shut down the Dodgers for the second straight game and hand the Red Sox a commanding 2-0 lead.
