Phillies 11 – Mets 5 May 2, 2010

Mets starting pitcher Santana delivers a pitch to the Phillies during their National League MLB game in Philadelphia

The Mets and, more so, Johan Santana got absolutely torched by the Phillies in the final game of their 3-game series. Santana gave up 10 runs in 3.2 IP including four home runs, one of those a grand slam to Shane Victorino. It was really ugly tonight for the Mets.

The Mets did have some offense against Jamie Moyer. David Wright had a big 3-run homer in the first inning and things were looking good. But not for long. Rod Barajas hit another homer as well. But the 5 runs the Mets put up weren’t enough to overcome the disastrous start that Santana had.

Santana looked worse than I’ve ever seen him as a Mets player. He gave up a bases loaded walk to Moyer of all things. Then Victorino hit the grand slam. It was hideous.

The Mets leave town losing two of three in Philly and a half game back in the NL East.

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.

    1. I haven't seen him look that bad before. And he totally choked on nationalTV in Philly. I can't think of a worse time to do that in the regularseason.
