Mets get shutout by the Nationals

By Gary W. Marchese Jr.

Flushing, NY (Sept 15) – The New York Mets were defeated by the Washington Nationals by the score of 2-0 on Wednesday night. Mike Pelfrey started and took the loss. Pelfrey did not pitch that bad at all and the bullpen was good. The offense could not get anything going at all though. They had four hits and not one player had more than one hit.

Pelfrey pitched seven innings giving up six hits and two runs and the runs were unearned. He walked two and struck out six. Pelfrey saw his record drop to 7-12 on the season. Miguel Batista pitched one inning and walked a batter and Josh Stinson pitched a perfect inning with two strikeouts.

Jose Reyes, Ruben Tejada, Jason Bay and Justin Turner each had a hit. Lucas Duda had a walk, Bay had two walks, Willie Harris and Mike Pelfrey each had a walk. Turner had a double, the Mets were 1-11 with runners in scoring position and they left 10 men on base. David Wright had a stolen base and an error.

In the third inning the Nationals took a 2-0 lead. Michael Morse hit an RBI single and Jayson Werth hit an RBI single. It was the only two runs of the game.

The Mets who were hanging around 500 most of the year have fallen completely out of it in the past week or so. The Mets were officially eliminated from the postseason today with the Braves win. The Mets also have lost the first three games of this four game series. The Mets record is now 71-78 and the Nationals record improved to 70-77. The Mets and Nationals will complete their series on Thursday afternoon at 1:10PM. The Mets will then play three games at Atlanta and three in St. Louis.
