  • With the win, Johan Santana now has 27 strikeouts and just five walks in 19.2 innings.
  • J.J. Putz and Francisco Rodriguez each recorded two strikeouts in the eight and ninth innings, respectively. The Mets took a 1-0 lead in the seventh and their two ace relievers shut things down, just like they drew it up over the Winter.
  • Mets pitchers combined to shut down the Brewers, allowing six singles and zero walks while striking out eleven.
  • Omir Santos scored the winning run and completed a strike-em-out, throw-em-out double play to end the game in the ninth. Tell Brian Schneider to take his time getting healthy.
  • Gary Sheffield started in left and looked far from awful. I don't expect him to bring much range to the table, but he certainly had some idea of how to play out there.
