Not the prettiest of games.
Infield hits. David Wright went 3-5 and drove in three RBI. The three rib-eye steaks all came on infield hits.
Hustle. Jose Reyes is owed a steak dinner from Wright, as he busted from second base on one of Wright’s infield hits and scored. Wow.
A five-run fifth inning.
Ike Power. Davis hit his 8th home run of the year to straight-away center field. I thought it was going to be a can of corn but it kept carrying and carrying and carrying…
Johan Santana’s fifth, sixth and seventh. After a rocky start (see: below), Santana allowed only one hit over his last three innings on the bump.
The Bad & Ugly
Johan Santana’s first four innings. After being handed a 1-0 lead before he even threw a pitch, Santana surrendered a three-spot in the second and another run in the fourth. I didn’t think he was going to make it out of the fifth inning.
Seriously, K-Rod? What should have been a nice and easy 9th inning turned into a nail biter after K-Rod surrendered a two-run blast to Shelley Duncan.
The Indians defense. Jason Donald had a rough night in the field and the Indians got charged for three errors. Yikes.
