Recap: Game 135 - Mets (5) at Nationals (6) - Mets Let Sweep Get Away in Washington

W: E. Davis (1-0) L: G. Germen (1-2) S: R. Soriano (36)
HR: NYM - M. den Dekker (1)   WAS - None

Recap:

Jayson Werth's go-ahead, two-out RBI double highlighted a three-run bottom of the eighth inning and lifted the Washington Nationals to a 6-5 win over the New York Mets in the finale of a three-game set.

Washington trailed 5-3 heading into the home eighth before Scott Rice allowed back-to-back singles to Scott Hairston and pinch-hitter Denard Span. Bryce Harper then bunted both runners into scoring position with one away before Gonzalez Germen (1-2) replaced Rice on the mound.

Hairston scored on Anthony Rendon's groundout before Zimmerman rolled a grounder back up the middle. Omar Quintanilla ranged far to his left to get a glove on the ball and threw wildly to first. Span rounded third and Lucas Duda's relay throw home wasn't in time. Werth then ripped a two-bagger into the gap in right-center to plate Zimmerman for the go-ahead run to make it 6-5.

Rafael Soriano tossed a scoreless ninth to notch his 36th save of the season. Erik Davis (1-0) picked up the win with a scoreless top of the eighth.

Werth tallied two doubles and also scored a run, while Zimmerman had three hits for Washington, which avoided a three-game sweep and are 6 1/2 games behind the Cincinnati Reds for the NL's second wild card spot.

"He's been swinging the bat good. He's driven," Nationals manager Davey Johnson said of Werth.

Matt den Dekker, who was called up Wednesday following the trade of Marlon Byrd, hit his first career homer for the Mets, who had their three-game winning streak snapped.

"Certainly, this is one we're going to look back on and kick ourselves a little bit for letting it get away. But yeah, winning a series is big," Mets manager Terry Collins said.

New York jumped out to a 3-0 lead after plating two runs in the first and another in the second.

Consecutive doubles to start the game by Eric Young and Daniel Murphy accounted for the first run, and Duda's single into right-center two batters later made it 2-0.

Dekker's blast into the second deck in the second made it 3-0.

Tyler Moore's two-out RBI single in the home second and Hairston's two- out single in the fourth trimmed the deficit to 3-2 before Murphy's one-out RBI single in the fifth upped the Mets' advantage to 4-2.

Duda and Wilson Ramos traded two-out RBI singles in the seventh to make it 5-3

Game Notes

New York Mets starter Jonathon Niese allowed two runs on 10 hits and two walks over 5 2/3 innings, while Nationals starter Ross Ohlendorf surrendered four runs on nine hits over five frames ... Murphy had two hits, two RBI and a run scored.

Preview:

The Nationals have had the Mets' number throughout the Davey Johnson era.

The New York Mets look to exact some revenge Sunday with their first three-game sweep of the Washington Nationals since 2009.

Johnson, whose first managerial job came with the Mets and was highlighted by winning the 1986 World Series, has seen his current team fall 7 1/2 games behind Cincinnati for the second NL wild-card spot after consecutive losses to New York -- including an 11-3 defeat Saturday.

The Mets (62-72) will try to further damage the Nationals' slim playoff chances behind Jonathon Niese (6-6, 3.69 ERA), who has had their number of late. Since allowing six runs in 4 1/3 innings the first time he faced Washington, he is 3-0 with a 1.07 ERA against the Nationals.

Niese has been pitched well against Jayson Werth, striking him out eight times while allowing four singles in 17 at-bats.

After a rough start to the year, Niese is 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA in four starts since returning from a partially torn left rotator cuff on Aug. 11.

"It's kind of rewarding to know I'm 100 percent now," Niese said after throwing a three-hitter Tuesday against Philadelphia for his second career shutout.

While Niese tries to shoulder some of the load the final month with Mets ace Matt Harvey out for the season, Ross Ohlendorf (3-0, 2.49) is simply trying to prove he belongs in Washington's rotation.

HR: NYM - None   WAS - None

Recap:

Seven New York Mets players drove in at least one run as the visitors pounded the Washington Nationals for 17 hits en route to a 11-3 victory.

Omar Quintanilla, Daniel Murphy, Juan Lagares and Eric Young Jr. had two RBI apiece while Ike Davis, Matt den Dekker and Zack Wheeler each drove in one run for the Mets, who have won three straight.

Wheeler (7-3) gave up two runs on five hits and a walk over 6 2/3 innings.

Jayson Werth, Denard Span and Ian Desmond all drove in a run for the Nationals, who have lost the first two games of this three-game set.

Dan Haren (8-12) struggled through 2 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs on nine hits to suffer his first loss since July 22.

The Mets got their offense going in the second. D'Arnaud and Lagares hit back-to-back one-out singles. After den Dekker struck out, Quintanilla ripped a two-out, two-RBI double to center.

An inning later, Young hit a leadoff single, stole second and scored on a Murphy single. Following a single by Josh Satin, Davis scored Murphy with a sacrifice fly to left.

Travis d'Arnaud and Lagares again delivered back-to-back singles but on the latter play, Satin was thrown out at the plate. With men on first and second, den Dekker singled to left for his first career RBI.

Haren was then replaced by Tanner Roark, who walked Quintanilla and Wheeler, allowing Lagares to score. He then gave up a two-run single to Young and the Mets had an 8-0 advantage.

Washington finally got on the board in the sixth. Anthony Rendon was hit by a pitch, Span singled up the middle and Bryce Harper was walked to load the bases. Werth hit a sacrifice fly to left and Desmond followed with an RBI single to left center.

However, New York added three runs in the eighth. Murphy smacked a one-out RBI double deep to right field. Later in the frame, Lagares knocked a two-out, two-RBI single to center.

Scott Atchison pitched the bottom of the ninth for the Mets. He gave up back- to-back infield singles to Jhonatan Solano and Steve Lombardozzi. Rendon and Span both grounded into a fielder's choice, but Span was able to score Solano. Atchison then gave up a single to pinch-hitter Chad Tracy but retired Harper to end the game.

Game Notes

The Mets are 34-34 on the road ... Young is 7-for-18 with five RBI, three runs scored and four stolen bases over his last four games ... Satin went 3-for-4 with a run scored ... D'Arnaud went 2-for-4 and scored twice ... Span is on a 14-game hitting streak ... The Mets hit 7-for-15 with runners in scoring position while the Nationals finished 1-for-9 with RISP ... New York's Jonathon Niese is scheduled to face Washington's Ross Ohlendorf is Sunday's series finale.

Preview:

The Washington Nationals have been soaring offensively in a bid to stay in the playoff chase, though they came up empty in the series opener.

It's not likely to get any easier against one of the league's top rookie hurlers.

The Nationals will try to bounce back at the plate and win for the ninth time in 11 games Saturday night when they host Zack Wheeler and the New York Mets.

Washington had averaged 6.3 runs and hit .318 while winning eight of nine before being limited to a pair of solo home runs and four other hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Mets (61-72).

Although Ryan Zimmerman went 2 for 4 to raise his average to .381 over his last 10 games, Bryce Harper went 0 for 4 to end his career-best 11-game hitting streak. In his final at-bat, Harper failed to run hard on a groundout with men on first and second in the eighth inning.

"I don't think he does it intentionally, but he's going to have to start picking it up a little bit because we've got everybody else doing it," said bench coach Randy Knorr, who filled in after manager Davey Johnson left due to illness. "It's something that we've got to fix."

Recap:

Dillon Gee tossed 7 2/3 strong innings to help the New York Mets take the opener of a three-game set from the Washington Nationals, 3-2.

Ike Davis cranked his ninth home run for New York while Daniel Murphy scored twice and contributed two hits in the victory, including his third double in his last two games.

Gee (10-9) was tagged for two runs on six hits while striking out three. He has now gone at least six innings in 12 straight outings.

"I just want to give the team a chance to win every time I'm out there," Gee said. "I feel like if I do that then I'll be happy."

Jordan Zimmermann (15-8) failed to become the National League's first 16- game winner after getting reached for all three runs on six hits in 7 2/3 innings.

Wilson Ramos broke a scoreless tie in the home half of the third inning when he drove a hanging breaking ball out to left for a solo home run.

New York claimed the lead a half inning later on Davis' opposite field blast to left. Murphy, who singled to lead off the frame, scored in front of Davis to give the visitors a 2-1 lead.

"It was a changeup that was up a little bit," Zimmermann said of Davis' homer.

The Mets added a crucial insurance run in the top of the eighth. Murphy doubled and scored with two outs when Andrew Brown hit a dribbler to Ryan Zimmerman at third base. Zimmerman's throw to Adam LaRoche at first landed short of the bag, allowing Brown to reach safely while Murphy crossed home plate.

Steve Lombardozzi, pinch-hitting with two away in the eighth, launched the second pitch he saw from Gee over the fence in right to bring the Nats within a run at 3-2. Gee then surrendered singles to Denard Span and Zimmerman before giving way to lefty Scott Rice, who retired Bryce Harper to hold the Mets' lead.

Forty-year-old LaTroy Hawkins came on in the ninth and retired the side in order for his sixth save of the season.

Game Notes

Prior to the game, Vic Black became the final player sent to New York in a deal that saw the Mets ship John Buck and Marlon Byrd to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Mets had previously received Dilson Herrera in the deal ... Travis d'Arnaud had two hits for the first time in his major league career ... New York hit 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position ... The loss snaps Washington's three-game winning streak ... Span extended his hitting streak to 13 games, while Harper's 11-game streak came to an end.

Preview:

The Washington Nationals are making a late push for the playoffs, and sending Jordan Zimmermann and his NL high-tying 15 wins to the mound Friday night should give them another opportunity to make up ground in the wild-card race.

The right-hander, though, has yet to earn a victory this year against the New York Mets, who look to get another dominant performance in the season series from Dillon Gee.

Washington swept three games from Miami and won for the 14th time in 19 contests with a 9-0 victory Thursday night. The Nationals' hot stretch has enabled them to pull within 6 1/2 games of Cincinnati for the second wild-card spot.

"We're a scary team when we're going good, and I think everybody knows that," outfielder Bryce Harper said.

Ian Desmond and Jayson Werth hit three-run homers, and Harper added a two-run shot Thursday to extend his career-best hitting streak to 11 games as Washington improved to 8-1 in its last nine contests. Desmond is 13 for 26 with three homers and eight RBIs over the last six games.
