Happy Recap: Mets 7 Nationals 2

The Mets finally got some key hits with runners in scoring position. I don't even care that most of them didn't even leave the infield.

Even if he doesn't hit two doubles every start Johan Santana is still going to win a lot of games for the Mets. He was awesome last night but except for against the bottom of the order. Wily Mo Pena, Wil Nieves and Tim Redding got 5 of the 7 hits he allowed, and produced the Nationals only 2 runs.

I'm glad that Willie went with Ryan Church batting 5th. He needs to do something to separate Delgado from Beltran.

I do wish he would have given Santana a chance to go a little deeper. He had only thrown 97 pitches and probably could have gone at least one more inning on about 13 pitches.
