The Nationals took the series today at Citi Field with a win in 11 innings. Chris Young had an excellent start going 7 IP and only allowing 1 run. The Mets offense only managed 8 hits in the game and struck out 17 times including 4 by Willie Harris alone.
Blaine Boyer blew another game in the 11th inning today raising his ERA to 10.80. That earned him a quick trip to the waiver wire being DFA’d after the game. Ryota Igarashi and Jason Isringhausen were called up and will be with the team tomorrow.
Lucas Duda, hitting .118, blew a fly ball in the 11th inning and he earned a one-way ticket to Triple-A Buffalo.
Overall, it’s a poor start to lose a home series to the Nats. That shouldn’t happen. But the Rockies come to town tomorrow and it doesn’t get any easier because they’re playing well so far this season.
