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.
