Mest Edge Bucs in 11

Last Night, the Mets pulled out an 11-inning, 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Jorge Sosa got the win in relief, and John Van Benschoten took the loss.

Nice to see David Wright get the game winning hit, he needed that, as he has been slumping lately...Johan Santana actually looked pretty good, with the exception to the pair of home runs that he gave up to Nate McLouth and former Mets farm-hand Jason Bay. Santana just threw a lot of pitches, because the Pirates were having good at-bat's all night, and were refusing to chase Johan's low change-ups and fastballs slightly off the plate...is Ryan Church dialed in or what? This is a guy who people were criticizing as early as spring training. So far, Church has been for real...

Wagner picked up his first blown save of the year, but it really wasn't his fault...Reyes already has made 5 errors this season, one of which was throwing error in the ninth inning last night, that ended up leading to the tying run crossing on a 2-out RBI single by Freddie Sanchez...

All in all, let's not dwell on what went wrong, let's just go out and win this afternoon...
