The Mets' second game in Washington was not nearly as heartbreaking as their first, but the result was the same. Chris Young allowed just two runs in six innings, both of which scored on a two-run home run by Adam LaRoche in the sixth. The Mets responded with one run in the bottom of the inning on a single by Andres Torres, but Miguel Batista took the mound in the seventh inning and surrendered two runs to drastically reduce the Mets' probability of winning the game.
David Wright led off the ninth inning with a home run against Tyler Clippard, and two outs later, Jason Bay hit a solo home run to pull the Mets within one. But Jordany Valdespin struck out to end the game, and Batista's inning ultimately doomed the game.
We knew it was over when...
Valdespin struck out.
- Why is Miguel Batista on the Mets' roster?
- What is Matt Harvey up to on Saturday?
- The Mets are just one game above .500.
Nice job by Steve Sypa; his effort in the game thread embiggens us all.
