Game 137 Recap: Mets, Parnell Blow Game in Ninth, Fall 8-7 to Nationals

By Unknown author

The Mets didn’t start-off on the right foot against the Nationals, but they certainly didn’t end on the right one either. Dillon Gee got spanked for eight hits, six earned-runs, and one walk in five innings. The righty did strikeout six batters, but he also surrendered three homeruns.

Pedro Beato, Danny Herrera, and Manny Acosta three a combined three scoreless innings, but Bobby Parnell could not hold the lead provided into the ninth. Parnell gave-up two hits, two walks, and two runs, preventing what would have been four-in-a-row for the Mets.

Unlike the pitching, the Mets offense did their jobs against Nationals. Angel Pagan, Jason Bay, and Nick Evans were the offensive heroes, providing six of the Mets seven RBI. Both Evans and Bay smacked two-runs shots each. Pagan collected two singles, and his twenty-ninth stolen base.

The loss drops the Mets down to 67-70.
