Wright’s Walk Off Powers Mets Over Padres 5-3

David Wright hit a walk off two run homer with two outs in the ninth. What a way to atone for his blunders on the bases in the last two games. He went 3 for 5 on the day with two RBI’s.

It was a typical Johan Santana start. He was excellent pitching into the eighth inning, and then the bullpen came in and blew the lead. Duaner Sanchez hit a batter in the eighth and Scott Schoenweiss gave up a solo homer in the ninth. The bullpen is a complete disaster at this point.

The Mets end up taking two of three from the Padres and gain a game today on the Phillies to move to 2 games back of the NL East lead.

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.
