With Strasburg now shut down, John Lannan (3-0) took the rubber at Citi Field in NY
Wednesday for his third start going 5 2/3 innings with 5 H, 1 BB, 2 K. The offensively-
challenged Mets were held scoreless by the bullpen to get the win for Lannan. Drew
Storen stepped on with 2 on and 2 out in the ninth to save the 2-0 victory.
Ryan Zimmerman extended his hit streak to 16 games with a solo shot in the 4th, his 22nd
of the year. All-Star shortstop Ian Desmond added another solo shot in the eighth, his
23rd of the year.
One discouraging thing for the Nationals was the team could not plate runners when they had big opportunities. In the 6th innings the Nats had the bases loaded with 0 outs and they couldn't get a run. Then in the 7th inning there was a bases loaded 1 out situation where Adam LaRoche grounded into a double play.
The Nats have been depending an awful lot on the long ball and have been stranding a lot of runners on 3rd base with less than 2 outs.
The Nats head to Atlanta for a 3 game series with the Braves starting on Friday...
