Mets Game 134: Win Over Braves

Mets 4 Braves 2

At least they didn’t get swept.

Game Notes

Johan Santana allowed just one run on three hits before leaving the game after only five innings with a pectoral strain. No word on when or whether he’ll be back.

David Wright had two hits and a walk in four trips to the plate, including his 22nd homer. Carlos Beltran ripped his second triple of the season, driving in one and scoring once.

Lucas Duda had another sparkling catch in left field, robbing Alex Gonzalez of a dinger. However, his first MLB hit continued to escape him, as he hit in the unusual spot of #2 in the order.

Next Mets Game
