Santana was fantastic once again, going 7 innings and giving up 0 runs while striking out 7. I think he’s pretty much a lock to win the NL Cy Young.
The only problem I had with the game today was once again, the runners left on base. Wright is struggling badly with runners on and it seems everyone else is struggling as well. Today though, it did not matter as we had the best pitcher in baseball on the mound.
The bullpen was lights out, it doesn’t get much better than Putz and K Rod to close out games. They teamed up to pitch 2 scoreless to hold the lead and get the Mets the win. K Rod ended the game with a thrilling strike em out, throw em out double play. This is a game the Mets would have most likely blown last year so this one is the 3rd Benitez Number.
