Scott Hairston hit a three-run home run in the first, Vinny Rottino followed with a solo job, and Johan Santana mowed em down. Complete game shutout with seven strikeouts, no walks, and only four hits.
We knew it was over when...
Johan Santana came out for the second inning and saw the "heart" of the Padres order. And mowed em down.
We really knew it was over when...
Andres Torres got a hit and a walk, mostly batting from the right side, and generally looked a little better at the plate than he has recently. David Wright wronged the Mets with a hitless day, but still got a walk and is now hitting a paltry .390. The Mets bench performed admirably.
Nice job by astromets; that effort in the game thread embiggens us all.
