Recap:The New York Mets were shut down by Matt Cain for almost eight innings, the Mets fought back against San Francisco's bullpen. Pinch-hitter Zach Lutz had an RBI double and Juan Centeno, making his major league debut, singled in a run off closer Sergio Romo (4-8).
Josh Satin hit a two-run single to cap a four-run outburst that sent New York past the San Francisco Giants 5-4 on Wednesday night, moments after Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada broke his right leg.
Tejada was injured when he tumbled over sliding left fielder Andrew Brown to catch a popup in the ninth inning. Tejada, who knocked shins with the oncoming Brown, initially stayed in the game but was lifted for Lutz in the bottom of the inning.
Satin had a career-best three RBI, including a sacrifice fly against Cain in the eighth. Vic Black (2-0) pitched a perfect inning for the win.
Matt Cain scattered six singles over 7 2/3 innings and did not allow an earned run. New York pushed only one runner to second base before the eighth.
New York gave away a run with two embarrassing errors in the fourth. Satin bobbled a leadoff grounder to third by Crawford, who scored when Brown flubbed Blanco's two-out fly to right.
