Johan Santana and Mets roll to Victory

The New York Mets got off to a great start with a convincing 7-1 victory today at Citi Field. Johan Santana was his usual self pitching 6 innings and allowing a run on 4 hits. He walked 2 and struck out 5. He was in a tight battle until the Mets opened up the game in the 6th inning with 4 runs, helped out by 3 Marlins errors. The Mets bullpen pitched 3 scoreless innings in support of Santana. Fernando Nieve pitched 2 innings giving up 2 hits and Francisco Rodriguez pitched a perfect 9th inning. Jason Bay, Rod Barajas and Gary Matthews Jr. each had 2 hits a piece. The newcomers really got into the action right away and had a big impact. It was a beautiful day and the Mets really made some improvements on the stadium incorportating their past. Darryl Strawberry threw out the first pitch which was a great thing by the Mets. I was a good day all the way around. The link to my article is below, the Mets and Marlins will continue their series on Wednesday.
