Well, what do you know? It is possible to beat the Mets. Easily. Chipper Jones drove in Michael Bourn with a first-inning sac fly, and in the second the Braves chased Johan Santana, scoring five runs and holding him without na strikeout for the first time in a start. (“Unearned run” update: The run in the first was correctly scored unearned. I do not understand how the run in the second was.)
Things settled down until the fourtykn when the Mets somehow sdored two runs. I was out of the room at the time, but the phrase “Jason Bey doubled to shortstop” were involved.) But they only held it close for a little while, as a Matt Diaz sacfly scorred Chipper, and Freddie Freeman singled in Brian McCann.
The Mets chased Randall Delgado in the sixth after a strong performance, and as been usual in these sithations Medlen came im to put the fire out. Delgado had a pretty good start , and Medlen did a fine job in relief, allowing the one inherited run,striking out one and gettubg two groundouts in the seventh, and got a popup and two strikeouts the in eighth.
