Johan Santana was good, but Josh Johnson was better. Santana threw 7 innings of 3- hit ball with 13 K’s and 1 walk, only giving up 2 runs. Johnson threw a complete game and nearly shut out the Mets. That’s how you beat Johan Santana.
Johnson nearly blew it in the ninth inning, giving up an RBI single to Carlos Beltran. He had the tying run on base but not in scoring position while managing to hang on and get the win.
The Mets lose the series to the Marlins 2-1 and go home to open Citi Field tomorrow night.
