Final Score: Nationals 6, Mets 2—[insert playoff odds joke here]

The Mets fell behind early and never came back.

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets were beaten pretty handily by the Nationals at Citi Field this evening. Bartolo Colon was not at his best, as he gave up six runs in three-plus innings and was ejecte when he hit Jayson Werth after giving up a home run to Ian Desmond in the fourth after having hit Desmond with a pitch after an Adam LaRoche home run in the first inning.

From there, Daisuke Matsuzaka threw three scoreless innings, and Erik Goeddel, Dario Alvarez, and Gonzalez Germen kept Washington from scoring again.

The Mets got on the board with a solo home run from Anthony Recker in the fifth. They scored once more on a bases loaded Dilson Herrera single in the seventh, but Wilmer Flores proceeded to ground into an inning-ending double play. The Mets loaded the bases again in the eighth but failed to score then, too.
