Washington starter Tanner Roark held the Mets offense in check until the top of the fifth, when Kirk Nieuwenhuis belted an RBI double. The Nats responded immediately in the bottom half with a game-tying RBI double of their own from Michael Taylor—a run that was set up when Colon failed to cover first on a grouner—then took the lead on a long three-run homer by (who else?) Adam LaRoche. The Mets scraped out another run on a Ruben Tejada sac fly in the seventh but could bring in no more, losing their 14th game to Washington this season. But hey, who's counting?
Full recap to come.
