Walk it off, Hank White.
Henry Blanco! Second straight day, second straight walk-off home run from a catcher. He went 3-5 on the day, too. Let’s go.
Creating runs. The Mets had three runs in the first three innings thanks to walks and wild pitches. They could have had a lot more, but good enough.
Johan, baby! He ended up giving up four runs on eight hits, but again, he did not have his best stuff. He walked none and struck out six. A good bounce-back after getting shellacked for 10 earned last time out.
Hisanori Takahashi. Tak tacked on two more Ks. Love it.
Francisco Rodriguez. Two walks in two innings, but that was it. He made it a little interesting, as usual, but was able to keep the Mets in it.
The Bad & Ugly
Taking out Santana for Fernando Nieve, then Pedro Feliciano. They ended up surrendering the lead as the inherited runner scored. Thumbs down. Let Johan finish it out himself.
The Mets had only three hits through six innings, but amazingly led the game the whole way.
Blanco, who else?
Mets and Giants finish it out on Mother’s Day at 1 p.m.
