It’s been since June 1st since Johan Santana last won a game. That changed tonight as the Mets shout out the San Francisco Giants for the second consecutive game and got their fifth straight win. The Mets are on a roll.
Santana only pitched five innings and left the game when the it was delayed for 40 minutes by rain. He only gave up three hits and three walks with five strikeouts. Aaron Heilman, Duaner Sanchez, and Joe Smith finished off the final four innings without allowing a Giants hitter to reach base.
The offensive star of the game goes to Carlos Delgado. He seems to have found his stroke over the last couple of weeks. He was 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and 2 runs scored. Ramon Castro was 2 for 4 with 3 RBI’s and his third homer of the year. Argenis Reyes came in as a pinch hitter and stayed in to play second base. And he went 2 for 2.
