The score pretty much says it all for this game. The Mets got rocked! These games will happen during the season. But Johan Santana got demolished for 9 runs in 3 innings. He pitched in the fourth inning but didn’t get an out. The Yankees scored 9 runs in that inning.
Santana has been slipping since May 16 when he gave up 4 runs in San Francisco. He hasn’t been nearly as good as he was for the first month and a half of the season. I’m hoping that he isn’t injured. But you have to wonder what the reason for the drop off in performance is.
I won’t really get into the Mets offense because there really wasn’t any. The only good thing is that Gary Sheffield is back hitting again. He went 2 for 3 today and had 2 home runs in the series against the Yankees. He’s back up to hitting .270 for the season, which is about where I’d expect him to be.
