Santana Brilliant As Mets Defeat Cubs 6-2

Johan Santana went eight innings throwing more pitches than he ever has in his career. The 125 pitch effort, giving up only two runs, is exactly what the Mets needed to get the monkey off their backs of a three game losing streak.

The big offense came from a three run triple by Jose Reyes in the sixth inning that solidified the Mets lead over the Cubs.

The Phillies lost tonight so the Mets move to 1.5 games 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.
