Not a good night to be David Wright.
Ike Davis and Jeff Francoeur each hit solo home runs in the fifth inning. Unfortunately, this accounted for all of the Mets runs.
Johan Santana was better than he’s been. He tossed seven innings, allowing five hits, including a two-run home run. He walked two and struck out four. He was lifted for a pinch hitter after 104 pitches.
The Bad & Ugly
David Wright. After striking out for the third time in the top of the 9th with a runner on third, Wright’s errant throw on a chopper allowed the winning run to score in the bottom half of the inning.
Jenrry Mejia threw 10 pitches and looked pretty awful doing so. Back to the minors where you belong.
Jerry Manuel insists on either pinch-hitting for or bunting with his No. 3 hitter. Tonight, he did both at the same time. Somehow, though, it worked out.
Johan, poor guy.
Another two game series kicks off tomorrow night in Washington, a 7 p.m. start.
