Mets 5 – Giants 4 May 8, 2010

New York Mets Oliver Perez, Jose Reyes and David Wright welcome batter Henry Blanco at home plate after his solo home run beat the San Francisco Giants in New York

This post is a little late coming but I was out and listening to most of the game on the radio this afternoon. The Mets won their second game in a row on a walk-off home run, this time by Henry Blanco in 11 innings. It’s the ninth straight home win for the Mets and takes the series from the Giants.

Johan Santana recovered nicely from his horrible start in Philly. He went 7.2 IP giving up 4 ER. But it should have been 3. Fernando Nieve and Pedro Feliciano relieved Santana in the eighth and both gave up hits without getting an out.

K-Rod pitched pretty well in the ninth and tenth innings. He did give up 2 walks and has a 1.15 WHIP, which is a little higher than you’d like to see from a top of the line closer.

The Mets had 7 hits in the game and Blanco was 3 for 5 in the game including the game winner in the eleventh. Clearly, he was the offensive hero of the game.
