Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the top of the 1st inning when the Astros jumped on Johan Santana for 2 early runs. The Mets never score for Santana so after the 1st inning runs I just knew this would be a long night for the Mets.
Game Ball: David Wright: 1-4 | 1 RBI.
Johan Santana: 7 IP | 8 H | 4 ER | 4 SO.
Ike Davis had a good game at the plate: 2-3 | 1 BB.
Mets are now 38-25 at home this season.
