Santana was then outdueled by Josh Johnson and the Marlins 1-0 thanks to a Daniel Murphy error.
Yesterday, he allowed five singles and no Brewer ever touched second base. The Mets won 1-0 and Santana earned his second win of the season.
So far, Santana has been nothing short of dominant. In three starts, he’s allowed only one earned run. That means in 19 2-3 innings, he has a 0.46 ERA.
Zero point four six.
Santana had made it through seven innings twice and has only allowed 11 hits, only two of which were doubles. The rest were singles. He’s walked five, meaning he’s only allowed 16 runners to reach base. Only two of those runners have touched third base.
He’s also struck out 27. Through three games, he’s faced 76 batters and Santana has struck out 35.6 percent of them.
What else can be said about Santana? He’s undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best pitcher in the league. So far, he’s the Mets MVP.
With a much stronger bullpen behind him, Santana seems on pace for a spectacular season.
