Postgame: Mets 2 at Reds 1 (Opening Day)

Today in Cincinnati, the Mets beat the Reds 2-1.

W – Johan Santana (1-0)
L – Aaron Harang (0-1)
S – Francisco Rodrigez (1)
Box Score/Recap
Presented from ESPN.
At the Plate:
  • Daniel Murphy hit a solo homer and then later drove in the 2nd run.
  • Ryan Church was 2 for 4 with a stolen base.
  • Carlos Delgado was 2 for 4 with a walk.
  • As a team the mets left 12 men on base. (not good)
On the Rubber:
  • Johan Santana went 5 2/3 innings giving up 3 hits, 1 run, struck out 7 but walked 4. He was removed after throwing 99 pitches.
  • Sean Green relived Johan and threw a perfect 1 1/3 innings.
  • J.J. Putz then pitched the 8th. He walked 11 and struck out 1.
  • K-Rod (but would like to be called Franky Rodrigez) pitched a perfect 9th, striking out 1 and earning his first save.
My Thoughts:
They won. That is the important thing. Johan walked too many but hopefully he will rebound. The team left wayyyyyyy too many runners on base.

Player of Game:
I am going to give the player of game to Daniel Murphy.
Up Next:
The Mets are off tomorrow and will play the Reds again on Wednesday with Pelfrey on the mound.

    Heya, Yeah I think the Mets stranded 12 runners. Johan was a little off with his control, but the Reds took a lot more pitches then they usually would. I would agree to give player of the game to Murphy and I am glad that we played a pretty tight game. I’ve got a report and series preview on my blog. Will be doing somethign similsr for most games. How good was it to see the pen shut things down? :-)Ashhttp://ashleymarshall.mlblogs.com
