A walk-off wild pitch.
Johan Santana tossed seven scoreless innings. He allowed only six hits and one unearned run (though the error was his). He walked only one and struck out five. Awesome.
Rod Barajas drove in the only one on a two-out RBI single.
Fernando Nieve’s 8th inning.
That’s about it.
The Bad & Ugly
Fernando Nieve’s 9th inning. Why, exactly, was he out there again? It’s bad enough he’s throwing practically every day, now he’s doing more than one inning every appearance?
The Mets had only four hits.
They struck out eight times.
They did not draw a walk.
Walk-off wild pitches. I mean, come on!?
Seven p.m. tomorrow, you know what they’ll do.
