Today, the Mets looked to take the series from the Nationals down in Washington D.C. The Mets had won 7-3 on Friday night behind a solid six innings by R.A. Dickey and three home runs by Met hitters. Last night, the Nats jumped ahead of the Mets early with a 5-0 lead. The Mets came back and lead 7-6 going into the ninth as they handed the ball of to Bobby Parnell. Parnell had a rough inning  and allowed a walk-off pop up single to right field off the bat of Ryan Zimmerman. Today, Mike Pelfrey took the mound, trying to improve his dismal7-11 record. Here is the scoring summary:

Top 3rd:

Ruben Tejada singled to right, Josh Satin and Mike Nickeas scored.

Bot 4th:

Danny Espinosa doubled to right, Jayson Werth scored.

Chris Marrerogrounded out to second, Rick Ankiel scored.

Wilson Ramos doubled to left, Danny Espinosa scored.

Top 6th:

Lucas Duda homered to center.

Willie Harris singled to right, David Wright and Angel Pagan scored

Mike Nickeas sac bunted to the pitcher, Jason Bay scored.

 

Overall, well to start, Mike Pelfrey was awful. He only allowed three runs, but he labored through most of his start. He left after just 4.2 innings, allowed five hits, and walked five on106 pitches. The bullpen was great today, though. Ryota Igarashi finished the Nats in the fifth and got the win. Josh Stinson, who made is debut the other night, pitched two scoreless innings. Jason Isringhausen, who hasn;t pitched this month, threw a scoreless eighth. Then, Bobby Parnell shut the door, retiring the Nationals in the ninth on only 13 pitches.

The Mets start a series with the Marlins on Monday.
