Santana CG Leads Mets Over Cards 9-1

Box score

The Mets jumped all over St. Louis Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse today, taking the rubber game of the series. The Mets finish their home stand going 4-2. Lohse was roughed up for seven runs over five innings. By contrast, Johan Santana went all nine innings giving up six hits and one walk for one run.

Santana had a run saved by Carlos Beltran making an outstanding catch over the center field wall on a bomb hit by Ryan Ludwick. Albert Pujols homered in the next at-bat for the Cards only run.

The Mets offense was led by David Wright and Fernando Tatis. Wright was 3 for 5 with a home run, and Tatis was 3 for 4 with a home run.

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.
