The Mets put on an offensive show tonight in Washington. They were aided by some really bad pitching by the Nationals Jason Bergmann. There were too many highlights to count but the Mets had homers from Fernando Tatis and Daniel Murphy, who raised his batting average to .467.
John Maine did a really nice job in his return from the disabled list. He went 5 innings giving up one hit and four walks on 90 pitches. Brian Stokes pitched the final 4 innings giving up three hits and no walks to complete the shutout.
Playing against the Nationals is a great way to get right coming off the Mets horrible loss at home to the Pirates on Monday. The Nationals are absolutely horrible.
