Nationals 6, Mets 4
The Nationals took the first game of their three game series from the Mets tonight by the score of 6 to 4. Detwiler pitched 6 innings while giving up 3 runs for his 7th win of the season. However, the real story of the night was the longball.
Michael Morse stepped up in the 4th inning with the bases loaded after 3 singles. He did not waste the opportunity as he belted a grand slam to give the Nats a 4-2 lead.
Harper followed up in the 5th inning with a 2 run shot of his own to give the Nationals 6 runs. The Mets would try to mount a comeback, but could only manage 2 runs the rest of the game.
Storen pitched well in the 8th, and T-clip notched another save, despite walking 2 people in the 9th.
The Nats are back at it again tomorrow night looking to clinch the series behind Edwin Jackson. If Jackson wins tomorrow, then all of the Nationals starting pitchers will be over .500 on the season.
