Johan Santana recovered nicely from his horrible start in Philly. He went 7.2 IP giving up 4 ER. But it should have been 3. Fernando Nieve and Pedro Feliciano relieved Santana in the eighth and both gave up hits without getting an out.
K-Rod pitched pretty well in the ninth and tenth innings. He did give up 2 walks and has a 1.15 WHIP, which is a little higher than you’d like to see from a top of the line closer.
The Mets had 7 hits in the game and Blanco was 3 for 5 in the game including the game winner in the eleventh. Clearly, he was the offensive hero of the game.
