In other news, the Mets to the Nationals lost by a score of 2-1. The winning Nationals run came in the bottom of the ninth inning, via a Ryan Zimmerman walk-off sacrifice fly.
Johan Santana was obviously the starting pitcher. He pitched 7 innings of one-run ball, allowing six hits and two walks while striking out seven batters. Obviously, this man got the no-decision because hell would have frozen over if the Mets had actually won.
Santana's only run of support came in the first inning via a Ike Davis RBI single. My future husband David Wright went 0-4 with one strikeout. I mean, it's not like the Mets didn't hit the ball; they had 8 hits tonight. They just don't hit the ball with runners in scoring position. When Johan Santana pitches. It bothers me that the only run was scored in the first inning. You mean to tell me that some guy named Livan Hernandez actually shut this team down for seven innings? Tsk, tsk, tsk.....
And another thing, if pitching Pedro Feliciano in the ninth inning didn't work on Tuesday, why exactly are we doing it again? I mean, we pay K-Rod to pitch in the ninth inning!!! Sure, he makes us crap our pants while pitching, but he gets the job done.
But, on the bright side, the Baseball Gods did finally give Johan the no-decision I was begging them for.
Tomorrow, Jon Niese gets the start for the Mets. Lets please crush the Nationals before Stephen Strasburg inevitably shuts us down on Saturday.
