David Wright‘s throwing error cost the Mets the ballgame, allowing the game winning run to come across for the Braves. Baseball fans were treated to a classic pitching duel in Turner Field. Johan Santana and Kris Medlen matched zeros for the first 2 innings, making it look like runs were going toÂ be at a premium. Johan let up a single to Chipper Jones in the 3rd with 2 out and Troy Glaus happily brought him in with a 2 run home run to put the Braves on the board first. The Mets answered back with some home runs of their own, one a piece by Ike Davis and home town boy Jeff Francoeur to tie up the game 2-2.
Fast Foward to the bottom of the ninth since the Mets and Atlanta bullpens dominated each other until then. Pedro Feliciano let up a single to Brian McCann. The Braves pinch ran for Mccann and the Mets subbed out Pedro for Jenry Mejia. Mejia ended up walking Yunel Escobar, moving Brent Clevlen to 2nd. Mejia got Melky Cabrera to ground to David Wright who threw wide to 1st base and allowed Clevlen to trot home for the winning run. Not only did Davids throw cost them the game, he went 0-4 with 3 strike outs. David Wright now has 58 strike outs, Jerry hinted about a day off for Wright in the near future.
