Santana, controversial home run lead Mets to complete sweep

Johan Santana was unusually wild in his start against lowly Washington on Wednesday, but he still struck out 11 batters and turned in a quality start to lead the Mets to a three-game sweep over the Nationals.

At the plate, Gary Sheffield stayed hot with a two-run double, while Daniel Murphy launched a fastball over the right field wall for a home run. The home run was not initially ruled a home run and Gary Sheffield was thrown out at home after he wasn’t sure what the call was, but the umpires reviewed yet ANOTHER home run for the mets and somehow had the conclusive evidence to prove the ball, in fact, bounced off a lit-up billboard above the outfield wall.

The Mets improved to 26-20 and regained possession of first place in the National League East after the Phillies dropped 2 of 3 to the Marlins.
