Fundamentally CanadianThe New York Mets exhibited superb defense, especially their outfielders, specifically Jason Bay who hit a gate in the Dodger Stadium left field wall with his face so hard that it bent his neck backward then sent him abruptly to the ground.   He made the catch.   Angel Pagan and Carlos Beltran also flashed the leather making some nice running and/or sliding catches throughout the game, Beltran's sliding grab coming in on a ball noteworthy considering his recent long disabled list stint and knee brace, helping Johan Santana (8-5) earn the win.   Santana went 7 innings allowing 1 run on 5 hits.   Bay woke up at the plate as did the Mets offense which scored 6 runs it's most since July 5th.   Bay hit a bases loaded double in the 8th inning driving in 3 runs and turning a tenuous 3-1 Mets lead into a 6-1 advantage.   Bobby Parnell and Francisco Rodriguez each threw a scoreless inning to finish up.   The Mets first run was perhaps their most interesting.   With 1 out in the 1st inning David Wright was at the plate with Jose Reyes on 3rd and Luis Castillo on 1st.   Castillo attempted to steal 2nd as Wright struck out for the 2nd out of the inning.   LA catcher Russell Martin's throw to 2nd was in time and Castillo would have been out but 2B Ronnie Belliard dropped the ball making Castillo safe as Reyes stole home.   Ike Davis hit a solo homer, his 14th, in the 2nd inning and Wright drove in a run on a sacrifice fly in the 8th prior to Bay's bases-clearing hit.   Mets manager Jerry Manuel was ejected from the game for arguing a bad out call on Castillo at first base that ended the top of the 2nd inning.   New York 6, Los Angeles 1.box score
