Pirates 2 Mets 1

Yet again the Mets waste an exceptional effort by ace Johan Santana, as the temporarily formidable offense turned back to feeble.

    During today’s broadcast, they showed a graphic that stated this season, Johan Santana is 1-7 in games that he give up more than 1 run. At the time, the Mets were winning 1-0.

    And I thought, at least today, he might be able to get away with giving up two runs.

    Nope, he is now 1-8 in those situations.
