A nail-biter from start to finish as the Mets fail to come through in the clutch but still eek out win over Nats.
The Mets (7-9) beat the Nationals (3-12) by a score of 4-3.
The Mini Recap
Johan Santana did his thing, striking out out seven of the first nine Nationals to face him. He allowed one run on six hits. He walked one and ended up striking out 10 in his six innings. Francisco Rodriguez had to make it interesting by allowed a two-run home run in the 9th inning, but was able to close it out.
The Mets scored runs on a misplayed ball by Elijah Dukes, Luis Castillo RBI single, Austin Kearns error and a walk with the bases loaded. The team left 13 runners on base. Carlos Beltran knocked in his 1,000th career RBI.
