Johan Santana pitched well but hurt himself with an error in the bottom of the sixth on a throw to third base. He pitched six innings giving up two runs (one earned). But Randy Wolf was better tonight going seven innings and giving up one run. The Mets left the bases loaded in the sixth and seventh innings.
The Mets only run came on a long sacrifice fly to center field by David Wright that scored Santana. The Mets haven’t had any offense in the first two games in San Diego. Ryan Church didn’t play again tonight, missing two of the last three games. Apparently, the concussion must still be bothering him.
The Mets have only scored one run in each of the first two games. They fall to 2-3 on this road trip and back to .500 for the season.
