The New York Mets (13-9) topped the Colorado Rockies (10-11) this afternoon 6-5 behind a superb start from Johan Santana and a breakout performance from Ike Davis.Johan Santana (ND, 2.25 ERA) finally received the first support that he's had all year with the Mets jumping out to a 3-0 lead over the ageless wonder Jamie Moyer in the first, and Santana took full advantage of the lead. Santana pitched 6 brilliant innings but threw a lot of pitches in the process of striking out 5. Santana allowed only 2 hits in his start but was unable to secure his first win of the year because of a faulty effort from the bullpen. Jon Rauch and Tim Byrdak combined to allow 4 runs through an inning of work, with Rauch allowing 3 base runners before Byrdak allowed a pinch-hit grand slam off the bat off Todd Helton to tie the game 4-4.The Mets would regain the lead 5-4 on a go ahead single by Kirk Nieuwenhuis in the top of the 10th inning, but Frank Francisco blew his first save of the year after Carl...

I know Santana doesn’t regret the money, but there are times...

The New York Mets (13-9) beat the Colorado Rockies (10-11) by the score of 6 to 5 in 11 innings, winning two out of three games in the weekend series.
Unfortunately, Johan Santana is extremely unlucky. Besides the fact that he’s a major league baseball play, a multi-millionaire, and a Cy Young, he is still unlucky. This is what I mean: Johan Santana threw six innings of shutout...
In the top of the eleventh inning with the go-ahead run 90 feet away, New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis dropped an opposite field RBI single in front of the left fielder giving NY a 6-5 lead they would not relinquish. Of his 13 hits on the season, the single to left was just his second the opposite way. After which, SNY broadcaster Kieth Hernandez said the following:
The first month of the season is almost in the books, and any Met fan will tell you that, aside from yesterday’s game-winner from Ike Davis, we haven’t gotten much from this team’s projected clean-up hitter when the season started.
With Ike, the attention started going negative when he was diagnosed with symptoms that were similar to those affected by Valley Fever, a condition...

Coming off of a loss in which the Mets lost by more than a touchdown, the club will look to bounce back behind a strong performance from Dillon Gee and the return of Ike Davis to the lineup. The last time Ike Davis played in Colorado would wind up being the last time he played in 2011. After a collision with David Wright, Ike Davis rolled his ankle and experienced complications...
Ike Davis is beginning to show signs of life again, and for opposing teams...that's not good.
The New York Mets held a 4-0 lead heading to the bottom of the eighth, but a grand slam from the Rockies tied the game sending it to extras two innings later. The Mets got a one run lead once again, but another homerun tied it for the second time. New York got the lead back in the...
