If it wasn’t for a costly error by the D-Backs, the Mets might have lost the last two of their series vs. the D-Backs. Thankfully for them, the errors helped the Mets take the series from the D-Backs, winning the final game, 5-2.
When a grounder was fielded at first by the D-Backs, then thrown to second, the throw was too high to even think about catching, as the ball rolled into the outfield. The runners took off and the game turned ugly in favor of the Mets.
Also, a Ryan Church one-hop laser to David Wright was a key out that kept the D-Backs from putting a runner on third base. The throw was a bit off-line, but Wright made a spectacular tag in time.
Moises Alou had a single up the middle to get his first official hit of the season (the night before he had a hit in my mind, but they scored it an error). Carlos Delgado continued his hot streak as of late, knocking a double off the wall that was nearly a home run. David Wright connected on his sixth homer of the season.
Johan Santana pitched six innings, and in that six innings only allowed one run. Billy Wagner was able to close the door easily, snatching his seventh save of the season.
