The Nationals are bad. Really bad. And the Mets are only the latest to hand Washington a loss this season. At 13-33, the Nats have more losses than any major league team has wins on this still blossoming season.
In their latest tangle, Johan Santana was solid allowing three runs in the 4th inning, but otherwise shutting down the Nats for his lucky 7th win of the season.
For the Mets, rookie Daniel Murphy hit a homerun (his fourth on the season), while powerful Adam Dunn hit his 16th on the season for Washington.
The win was huge for the Mets as they are now sitting atop the NL Eastern Division a half game above the World Champion Phillies. Up next, the Mets host the Marlins for a weekend series that could help them gain on the division. Grab some New York Mets tickets and enjoy!
