Putz, K-Rod secure Mets' win over Reds (AP)Posted by DuckSnort 5 days ago (http://us.rd.yahoo.com)
One game in, that new Mets bullpen sure looks good. Daniel Murphy drove in both New York runs with a homer and a groundout Monday, a memorable showing in his first big league opener, and the Mets' rebuilt bullpen made it hold up for a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on a raw, cold afternoon. The Mets became known for meltdowns the last two seasons, blowing division leads in September.
Johan Santana (1-0) went 5 2/3 innings Monday, extending his streak without a loss since July 9, and the bullpen didn't allow a hit the rest of the way. Sean Green got the final out of the sixth and cruised through a perfect seventh. J.J. Putz gave up a walk in the eighth. Francisco Rodriguez retired all three in the ninth, which was a huge problem last season when Santana pitched. The left-hander watched the bullpen blow five of his leads in the ninth inning last year.
