The San Francisco Giants grabbed both ends of a doubleheader on Monday at Citi Field, beating the Mets 6-1 and 7-2, and taking three of four overall in the series.

Miguel Batista pitched just 3 2/3 innings, allowing seven hits and six runs, but only half of the runs were earned due to an Ike Davis error. He falls to 0-1 after his first start of the season, as Terry Collins moved Batista into the starting lineup due to the doubleheader.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Daniel Murphy each had two hits in the matinee, and Mike Baxter had the team’s only RBI.

Tim Lincecum got his first win (1-2), after five innings with just four hits and a run.

In the nightcap, Dillion Gee was battered for a dozen hits in 6 2/3 innings, allowing all of San Fran’s seven runs.

Pablo Sandoval and Hector Sanchez provided the power, Sandoval getting his third homer of the season while Sanchez got his first.

Madison Bumgarner picked up the win (3-1) with seven innings of three hit, one run ball. The Mets had just six hits in the second game, falling to 8-8 with five losses in their last six games.

New York welcomes Jose Reyes and the Miami Marlins (7-8) to Citi Field for the start of a three game series on Tuesday night, with Johan Santana (0-2) and Josh Johnson (0-2) matching up as each looks for his first win.
