Since the Rainout, the Mets Are On High Ground

May 7, 2009

Phillies right fielder Jayson Werth remained inside the visitor’s dugout after the game had ended last night and watched as Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, and other Mets players celebrated their third consecutive win. It was obvious Werth had a lot on his mind. Perhaps, it was caused by his slight hesitation while attempting to throw out the Mets Carlos Delgado at home plate in the bottom of the seventh inning. It quite possibly may have cost his team the game.

Delgado’s run was the only run scored in a 1-0 victory that earned Mets left-hander Johan Santana his fourth win of the season. Santana again pitched brilliantly for seven innings in which he struck out ten Phillies batters. By the way, three of those strikeouts were compliments of Werth. I’m not one to rub salt in an opposing player’s wounds, but I just feel it was “worth” noting. Santana’s ERA is now a measly 0.91. Mets closer Frankie Rodriguez pitched a one, two, three ninth to earn his eighth save and left-hander Pedro Feliciano shut down the heart of the Phillies order in the eighth inning.
