Johan Santana (7-3) is proving his value to the Mets this season. He put the hammer down on the Los Angeles Dodgers to take three out of four in the series. Santana gave up a run in the first inning, and then cruised through 7.2 innings for the win.
Ryan Church was back in the lineup and doesn’t appear to be feeling any ill effects from his concussion. He was 3 for 4 with two RBI’s a double and a home run in the third inning. Nice comeback!
Carlos Beltran also hit a home run in the five run third inning. It was his second game in a row with a homer, and also another long shot off the scoreboard in right center.
David Wright had a good game going 3 for 4 with 2 RBI’s and a stolen base.
The Mets leave for San Francisco tonight for a three game series.
