Good morning!

Since I'm on the other side of the world, day games in New York happen while I am asleep. So my morning gift was well-appreciated: a comprehensive 9-1 win for the Mets. Santana pitched a complete game five-hitter, the Mets first complete game since 2006. Wright, Tatis, and Castro homered, but the highlight might have been Carlos Beltran's running straight back to the wall and robbing Ludwick of a home run. Watching Beltran run is a thing of beauty, and he had to time the leap perfectly.

This was a 'complete' game in more ways than one; power and clutch hitting, great pitching, amazing fielding.

Even with all that, it was only one win, and the Phils won too, so the Mets hold on first place is just one game.

I still can't believe they are in first, not with the way they were playing for the first 3 months of the season. Thank goodness for the length of baseball seasons - although that proved to be a burden last year, if I recall.
