Mets Win the Series! 6-4 win

Mets proved me wrong as they win their second straight game (I thought they were going to lose the series), this time behind a stellar pitching performance by Johan Santana. He threw 7 2/3 innings (105 pitches), but left with the bases loaded; Feliciano came in and left them stranded, getting Robinson Cano to pop out to Ike Davis.
  • Johan was attacking the hitters and throwing strikes, until the 7th inning he started to falter
    • Let up only one run, six hits, three walks
    • His change-up was outstanding tonight
  • Other game ball goes to Jason Bay, who hit two home runs; one to left and one to right center
    • Hopefully this is the hot streak everyone has been waiting for
  • David Wright struck out in his first two at bats, but did get an RBI double in his 3rd at-bat
  • Alex Cora started the offensive outburst, driving in the first two Mets runs in the 2nd inning.
    • Sabathia's final line: 5 innings, 6 runs, 10 hits (!!), 2 walks.
  • Jeff Francoeur took another 0-3 with a strikeout and is now hitting .211
    • He's hitting .132 for the Month of May, with a .173 OBP and a .176 SLUG %
      • His only extra-base hit this month was the HR in Atlanta
    • He's hitting .188 versus righties this year, with a .368 Slug %.
      • Chris Carter's slug % last year versus righties was .502 (yes in AAA).
    • Just sayin'
  • R Igarashi had a very tough outing (one out, three base-runners), forcing the Mets to use K-Rod in back to back games, after getting the five-out save yesterday (28 pitches).
    • K-Rod enters the game and promptly lets up a double to Jeter and an infield single to Teixeira.
      • Threw a 3-2 curve-ball from K-Rod to strike out A-Rod to end the game
      • He wound up throwing 21 pitches today; he will get a much needed day off
Mets have off on Monday before opening up a three-game series vs Philadelphia R.A. Dickey vs Jamie Moyer on Tuesday.  Let's try to build on this series.
