Game 147 Recap: Nats Edge Mets, 3-2

By Unknown author

And the losing streak continues. The Mets dropped their third game in a row, falling to the Washington Nationals, 3-2.

Despite a grand effort by R.A. Dickey, who hurled seven innings, giving-up eight hits, three runs (two earned), zero walks, and seven strikeouts, the Mets offense simply could not support him. The hitters only recorded three hits (David Wright, Angel Pagan, and Nick Evans) against Nationals starter Ross Detwiler, and couldn’t connect versus relievers Todd Coffey, Tyler Clippard, or Drew Storen.

At the very least, it was good to see Josh Stinson bounce back with a scoreless 2/3 of an inning after getting bashed just a few nights earlier.

The loss knocks the Mets down to 71-76.
