Oh yea, hes a man. Johan Santana went 7.2 innings of one run ball versus the Yankees on Sunday night. The last time these two matched up, the Yankees lit up Johan Santana for 9 runs in 3 innings. Johan pitched with a chip on his shoulder tonight and looked like the ace we all know and love. Not only did Johan pitched well enough to win, he got the Mets their first rubber game win of the year. Santana made sure the Yankees knew that he was on the mound and who the real ace of New York was.
Ay Bay Bay! Jason Bay topped his performance last night by hitting two home runs off the Yankees ace CC Sabathia. Jason hit his first home run over the left field wall and hit his second the opposite way over the right field wall. Jason is and always will be a streaky player. It is great timing that we are seeing “good” Jason with the Phillies right around the corner. Jason is hitting .307 right now and is looking like his early season slump may be a thing of the past.
Francisco Rodriguez for closing the door on the Yanks for his 8th save
Jose Reyes went 2-5 and Ike Davis went 2-4
Pedro Feliciano for getting Robinson Cano out on 3 pitches
