MILWAUKEE (AP) – New York Mets manager Jerry Manuel says he’ll take the criticism for pulling ace Johan Santana after eight scoreless innings on Friday night in a game they lost to Milwaukee 2-0 in the ninth.
Manuel says he never consulted with Santana before pulling him after 105 pitches. Manuel says he didn’t want Santana to face Prince Fielder and the heart of the Brewers’ order despite allowing just three hits.
Mets reliever Ryota Igarashi gave up a game-ending homer to Corey Hart with two outs in the ninth that snapped New York’s five-game winning streak and 35-inning shutout string.
