Johan Santana took another loss tonight, his third straight. Although this time he didn’t pitch a complete game. He went 7 innings and allowed all 4 runs. Houston put up 2 against him in the first and then two more in the fifth on a 2-run homer by Carlos Lee.

As always, the Mets had no offense. They had 9 hits and 1 walk in the game but only put up 1 run. The Mets didn’t even score the run until the bottom of the eighth when David Wright singled in Luis Castillo. That was the offense…

The Mets and Astros will play the rubber game of the series tomorrow afternoon.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
