On Air: The Official Blog of WSJU Sports

After a great come from behind victory by The New York Mets last night, The Washington Nationals would make sure that there would be no repeat in today’s game at Citi Field.

Mike Pelfrey took the mound for the Mets going 5.2 innings, 7 hits 4 earned runs, 3 walks and 6 strikeouts. He also went 1-2 at bat with a run batted in. A sub par performance would not be enough for the Mets as Craig Stammen would toss 5 innings also, give up 4 runs and strikeout 2 batters but bringing in 2 runs with his bat and the rest of the Nationals would prevail to a 6-4 win on a bitter cold afternoon.

Francisco Rodriguez would get the loss coming in the ninth inning and give up a 2-run home run to Roger Bernadina who also homered earlier in the game.

Mets pack their bags and head down south these next four days to face The Florida Marlins then head a little up to Atlanta to face the Braves who they swept this year for a two game series.

Mets are now 18-16, 1 game behind the Nationals for 2nd place and 2 1/2 games behind the Philadelphia Phillies
