Sunny Santana

New York Mets Record 57-57

Current Streak: W1
The New York Mets have been really struggling since the All-Star Break. And Francisco Rodriguez isn't helping the cause. K-Rod,as they call him,was in the Family Lounge after Wednesday night's loss vs the Colorado Rockies. K-Rod got in a argument with his girlfriend and his girlfriend's dad got into it with them. Reports say that K-Rod took his father in-law in a tunnel and beat his head against the the walls. His father in-law had to be taken to the hospital while Francisco was being put in handcuffs. But The Mets still had to play baseball. The Mets put their ace Johan Santana on the mound while the Rockies countered with Jason Hammel. Things were looking good early on. After Jose Reyes got on base and stole second, the Mets were in buisness. Angel Pagan sliced one just past Melvin Mora,which brough speedy Reyes into score. 1-0 Mets. After an Ike Davis Ground Rule Double, Carlos Beltran came up. Carlos then smacked one high to Left. Carlos Gonzalez caught it but could not get also speedy Angel Out at home. 2-0 Metros. Johan was pitching a gem ALL DAY. His fastball set up his changeup and his changeup set up his fastball. And the Mets were still giving him runs. In the 7th, after a Ruben Tejada walk and a Johan single, Jose came up. Jose smacked one into the hole which brought 20-year old rookie Ruben Tejada in. Then 22-year old rookie Fernando Martinez came up. Fernando hit one high to right. It had the same result as Carlos' did earlier. Sacrifice Fly. 4-0 Mets. Johan proved that we don't need a closer to win ballgames as he pitched a Complete game 4-hit shutout. Those are Some Stats to be proud of. Opinion: We finally win a series. Johan's touch is finally back. Are hitting just needs to be tweaked a little bit I think.
