- Johan Santana was absolutely spectacular tonight throwing 7 1/3 innings of shutout baseball while giving up just 5 hits, 3 walks, and striking out 6 batters.
- K-Rod pitched 1 2/3, gave up 0 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. He was awarded the save tonight.
- Jeff Francoeur hit the game-winning home run off Cole Hamels in the 7th inning to give the Mets a lead.
- No Met had more than 1 hit tonight.
Wow Johan… this was a huge game and he pitched great. All of my doubts that he is no longer a stopper and an ace went away tonight.
Huge homer by Frenchy the night he learned that he will be platooning with Fernando Martinez.
The Mets brought in Tejada and Martinez to add youth and range to this club. That paid off as Tejada made 4 spectacular plays that would have been hits if Castillo was playing.
Grade for the Game: A
