Mets Win Seventh In A Row [David Stefanini]

Make it 7 wins in a row for the New York Mets. This was a game two weeks ago that the Mets would have lost. After already winning the series by taking the first two games and fifth starter Livan Hernandez getting off to a slow start, the Mets would have struggled through the afternoon and lost the game. This time however, they battled back, took the lead and later turned the game into a 4 run victory.

Omir Santos drove in two big runs in the 4th inning and continues to look impressive. The thing I like about him is how he runs. He got caught stealing after he drove in those two runs, but he is a deceptively fast runner. This team has a lot of speed with the likes of Reyes,Beltran and those guys, but having a catcher with some speed just contributes to the Mets base running ability. Brian Schneider is set to start rehabbing soon, but is there any Mets fan who wants him to return?

There is yet more good news about this team. Tomorrow the best pitcher in the world, Johan Santana is scheduled to make his 7th start of the season. The game is against the Atlanta Braves and their ace Derek Lowe.
