The Nats beat the Mets for the third straight game, as David Wright‘s third-inning error opened the floodgates for the only 2 runs of the game to score. The Mets are limping to the finish line with their 4th straight loss, and 6th in their last 7 games. They are now 71-78 on the season.
Mike Pelfrey was solid tonight, but Nats rookie Brad Peacock was a little better. Peacock (and the rest of the Nats pitchers) shut out the Mets, while Pelfrey gave up 2 runs (both unearned). The Mets had their chances with runners on base, but just couldn’t get anyone in, batting 1-11 with runners in scoring position. Jose Reyes lined out to Rick Ankiel (who made a nice diving grab) with 2 on to end the game.
