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.
