Jason Bay 1 for 3 with an RBI double, his first double in 186 at-bats.
Daniel Murphy hit 2 doubles including a go-ahead 2 run double.
Dickey pitched into the 7th inning and let up 2 runs while striking out 7.
Dickey was great tonight. He had good control all night and kept the reds hitters off balance.
Murphy is such a good hitter. What I like the most about him is that he drives pitches where they are in the zone. For your second year in the league, it is very impressive that he can perform like this.
Johan Santana was tired of the no run support so he decided to have a 12 pitch AB and hit his first career home run to get himself a run. Also, good job by Gary Cohen calling it saying that he is going to hit one soon.
Jason Bay hit a big 2 run, 2 out single to give Johan some insurance.
Jose Reyes went 2 for 4 in his first game since his side injury and brought speed back to the lineup.
Johan Santana was just spectacular tonight going 9 innings, 3 hits, 0 runs, 3 walks, and 5 strikeouts. This was his first complete game shutout since the second to last game of the year in 2008.
There is nothing to say because no one else pitched tonight.
Grade for the Game: A+
Johan Santana had his best game of the year tonight with his shutout. Also, how often does a player end up tops in the hitting and pitching category. That means it was a good night. Bay was good and so was Wright in this game. But, all attention goes to Santana.
