The Mets scored in two consecutive innings and added another in the seventh but it wasn’t enough as they were defeated 5-3, dropping their third consecutive game and second to the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night:
Jeremy Hefner started for the Mets, allowing four runs, three earned, over six innings:
The Nationals got to Hefner early scoring three runs in two hits in the top of the first inning. Following a Daniel Murphy error and a Ryan Zimmerman walk, Adam LaRoche drilled a first pitch, hanging curve into the right field seats to give Washington the early 3-0 lead. Jeremy settled down to toss 3 2/3 scoreless innings before three consecutive singles plated the Nats fourth run of the game.
OH MURPH: Daniel Murphy committed two errors and third over the last two games while going hit-less in four at-bats. The Mets second baseman is now 0-for-his-last 17 seeing his season average drop to .289 in the process.
THREE-HITS. REALLY? NY mustered just three hits on the evening, one of which came off the bat of Ike Davis; who has now reached base in each of his last two games (pulling at straws here).
