Quick Recap: Nationals 5, Mets 3 — A Dickey Deferred

Dickey digs for gold but gets the shaft. (Tim Farrell/THE STAR-LEDGER via US PRESSWIRE)

The Nationals got to R.A. Dickey for a rare first inning run, but he kept the Nats off the board for several innings thereafter. His teammates could do little against Jordan Zimmerman, despite the righty's wildness and high pitch count, until the fifth. A Daniel Murphy RBI double and a David Wright RBI single in that frame gave the Mets the lead and their first multi-run inning at home in 110 innings.

The lead was short lived, as pinch hitter Tyler Moore crushed the first pitch he saw in the top of the seventh for a two-run homer. The Nats padded their lead with a few runs at the expense of birthday boy Frank Francisco, while the Mets batters did virtually nothing against the Washington bullpen (surprise, surprise).

Full recap to come.
