Johan Santana hit a home run, which said he was in it to win it. He showed that by pitching a complete game shutout, throwing 113 pitches. He gave up only three hits, and I am glad to see him at his old form.

I kind of missed his homer but he hit it off of the right field foul pole.

Santana spoke to Jerry Manuel with one out and two runners on in the 9th, and I thought he was done. He basically told Jerry he was fine, and Jerry went back to the dugout, looking pretty ticked. He only needed two more pitches to get the two outs. The rubber-game will be tomorrow at 7:10pm on SNY.
