Mets Pen Blows Santana Gem Against Marlins

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - Even with a rebuilt bullpen, the Mets blew another one for Johan Santana.

Cody Ross hit a two-run single off J.J. Putz in the eighth inning, Jorge Cantu cracked his third homer in two games and the Florida Marlins rallied to beat New York 4-3 on Wednesday.

Matt Lindstrom escaped a bases-loaded jam in the ninth by getting pinch-hitter Omir Santos on a game-ending popup. In a curious move by Mets manager Jerry Manuel, the inexperienced Santos batted for fellow catcher and right-handed hitter Ramon Castro, who had two hits and an RBI.
