Haren’s uneasy start gave way to a
bad finish as Nats’ bats cannot catch up with Mets in 10-1 loss that put the
Nationals into 3rd place in the NL East. Haren pitched four innings
giving up 7 hits and 5 runs, all earned. Ian Desmond batted in Nats’ only run with a
line-drive single in the bottom of the first allowing Denard Span to score.

Mets’ Right fielder Marlon Byrd hit
a two-run homer in the top of the second to gain a 2-1 lead over the Nats. In
the third David Wright also hit a two-run homer followed quickly by another
homerun by Byrd, this time a solo shot, all of which gave Mets 5-1 lead. It didn’t get much better from there.

Craig Stammen came into relieve in
the fifth and allowed 3hits, 2 runs, struck out 2 and walked 2, which was the second-most
base-runners Stammen has allowed this season. By the bottom of the fifth Nats were
down to Mets 7-1, Mets RHP Dillon Gee waltzed through the side, going 1-2-3.

Recently called up rookie, LHP Ian
Krol came in in the 6th for his Major League Debut. After he allowed
just one hit, a double from Omar Quintanilla, Krol struck out his next three
batters, all swinging.

Erik Davis, also a rookie who
debuted in Atlanta on Sunday, came in to relieve in the 7th allowed
4 hits, 3 runs, and walked one before striking out the side.

Over the next two and a half innings
Nats managed 2 hits and one walk, while Fernando Abad went 1-2-3 in the 8th
and 9th with 2 strike outs.  

In the 3 hours and 12 minutes of
this slaughter, the Nats did manage 10 hits with a walk, however they failed to
capitalize on that with only one run to show for it.

Mets’ pitcher Dillon Gee pitched a
solid 7 innings with 7 strike outs, 1 walk, allowing only one run.   

Nationals look to take the series
tomorrow with RHP Gio Gonzalez starting with a 3.64 ERA going against Mets’ RHP
Shaun Marcum with a 5.71 ERA.
