Mets win with a walk off! Game started off a pitching dual, very unlikely I know, but there was no hits for either team till the third, and no runs till the fourth. Mets were able to get the game tied and keep the game tied at 1-1 into extra innings. Omir Santos got the game winning base hit to win the game 2-1. Four wins in a row.
Mike Pelfrey started the game off great, got a no hitter through two innings. Gave up some extra base hits in the fourth but only gave up one run. Settled down nicely as he set down eleven batters in a row at one point. He went 7 1/3 innings, gave up 1 run on 5 hits, walked 1 and, uncharacteristically, struck out 6 in the game. He walked away with a no decision. Parnell got his one guy out to end the inning. Frankie Rodriguez pitched the ninth inning, striking out two not allowing any runs. Putz went 1 2/3 innings, striking out one. Feliciano comes into the game and finishes the inning and gets the win.
Mets offense really didn’t get much going until the fifth inning as Santos hit his third homerun of the season. He’s SO not leaving! Mets were able to get the bases loaded for David Wright in the eight with one out, he struck out and Tatis flew out. Best chance for runs in the game. Mets were not able to anything in the ninth, to extra innings we go. Sheffield got a base hit in the eleventh, stole second and was able to get to third base on the throwing error. Tatis gets hit, Santos with a walk off base hit!
