Happy Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 24 - Mets at Nationals - Win 6th in a row
Daniel Murphy ripped a two-run double during a four-run ninth inning the New York Mets used to record a 6-3 victory over Washington in the second of a three-game series from Nationals Park.
Murphy had also blasted a game-tying solo homer in the eighth in a pinch-hit appearance. The Mets fell behind again, but loaded the bases to begin their final at-bat, then tied the game on a sacrifice fly from pinch-hitter Chin- Lung Hu. Josh Thole knocked in the decisive run with a groundout to short before Murphy created some breathing room.
Sean Burnett (0-1) suffered the blown save and the loss for the Nationals, who have dropped six of seven. He allowed four runs, four hits and a walk in the ninth.
The Mets have won a season-high six straight games, climbing over the Nationals and out of the National League East cellar in the process.
