Two out of three…is pretty darn good.
Names starting with J. Except you, Jeff Francoeur.
Johan Santana turned in a stellar performance, allowing just one run over 7 2/3 innings. He allowed six hits and walked three, but only started to get wild at the end. He struck out five. Probably his best performance this season. I love you, man.
Jason Bay hit not just one, but two home runs off CC Sabathia, bringing his season total up to three.
Jose Reyes is heating up. He went 2-5 today, and is 4-10. I like this trend.
Ike Davis continues to stay toasty, going 2-4 with a run scored.
Alex Cora drove in two, as well.
Pedro Feliciano entered with the bases loaded in the 8th and got Robinson Cano to pop up to end the inning.
The Bad & Ugly
The bullpen. Yeesh. Yeah, Pedro did his thing, but Ryota Igarashi didn’t fare too well in his first game back. A walk and two singles while only recording one out. Francisco Rodriguez came on and made things more interesting, allowing two inherited runners to score before quietly shutting the door on the game. Oh yeah, it was an A-Rod strikeout, but it should have never come to that point.
Jeff Francoeur with another 0-fer. He did walk once, though.
Johan and Jason.
Monday is an off day, and I’m going to see Rachel Ray with the girlfriend, her mother and my mother. Apologies for the light posting schedule tomorrow. The Mets resume play Tuesday against the Phils.
