There wasn’t a lot of hitting today which was no surprise with Johan Santana and Dan Haren matching up. David Wright had the only homer of the game, which was one of only six Mets hits on the day.
Connor Jackson made a huge throwing error in the ninth inning that opened the door for the Mets to score three runs and win the game. Marlon Anderson had a big pinch hit RBI single in the ninth.
Johan Santana gutted through six innings giving up only one run. We still haven’t seen his best stuff yet. But I love the way he always keeps the Mets in the game. He never lets a game completely get away from him. It’s easy to see why he’s one of the best pitchers in the game.
This was a huge win today and will hopefully propel the Mets. Going into Arizona and taking a series from the team with the best record in the league has to be a big confidence builder for the Mets. That was a great game going right down to the ninth inning, maybe the best game of the year so far.
