This is the third excellent game by Johan Santana that the Mets have wasted this season. He went 6.1 innings allowing 2 runs, both unearned. It was two errors that lost this game for the Mets.
David Wright short hopped a throw to Fernando Tatis at first base that he couldn’t scoop in the first inning that led to a run. The Braves exploded for four runs in the seventh inning after Jose Reyes booted a ball behind second base with two outs. That led to four runs scoring in the inning.
Carlos Delgado didn’t play because his hip had stiffened up on him. They’re going to give it a few days to see if it gets better. If not, he may end up on the disabled list for 15 days.
