Last night probably felt like a game that the New York Mets had to have. Instead, the struggling club lost their season-high fifth straight game.
After losing in disappointing fashion, the Mets look to rebound this evening in the continuation of a three-game series against the first-place Washington Nationals.
New York lost its final game before the All-Star break to begin its current slide, which continued with a three-game sweep at the hands of the hosting Atlanta Braves last weekend.
Following a needed off day, the Mets looked to have their skid snapped when Jordany Valdespin hit a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the top of the ninth inning, but Bobby Parnell gave up a run-scoring single...

Nationals 4, Mets 3: Ho-hum. Just another series win for the Nats. 17 wins over .500.
Ho-hum; just another quality start for Jordan Zimmermann. His line: IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 95 pitches, 68 strikes. Hey, he got the W for this one!
Now that we've made it past the All-Star break, Ryan Zimmerman is due for another cortisone cocktail, according to the Washington Post. The shot in his shoulder will reduce inflammation in his AC joint, and prevent him from feeling pain when he hits. Zimmerman said that the ability he regained after receiving the shot made him “happier,” and it has been making Nationals fans...
Chris Young was victimized in late innings as has been the theme, the bullpen faltered and despite a ninth inning rally including two solo home runs, the Mets lost the second game of the series, 4-3.
Chris Young had a pretty solid outing, going six innings allowing two runs on six hits, walking one and striking out two. Young was good for the most part, but as has been...
As one of the most underrated starters in baseball, Jordan Zimmermann had a typical Jordan Zimmermann outing on Wednesday as the Washington Nationals beat the New York Mets 4-3 and win the series.
Zimmermann lasted six innings, surrendering just four hits and striking out four. He didn’t give up any runs or walks. It’s ben remarkable to watch how good JZimm has been, and it...

On a team with All-Stars Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez combining for 22 wins, Washington Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann can get overlooked. Maybe not as flashy as his rotation counterparts, Zimmermann has been more consistent. Manager Davey Johnson believes Zimmermann is a No. 1 starter, but Johnson doesn't need to go around telling anyone else how good the Wisconsin...
While he hasn't garnered as much attention as his two All-Star rotation mates, Jordan Zimmermann is quietly enjoying a superb campaign.

The Mets look to pick up the pieces from last night and try again tonight in DC. For the first 7 innings of the game, the only part of the Mets that was effective was the starting pitching. Then, in the 9th, the Mets bats...
“…and then I put in Batista and your home run meant NOTHING!”
What a tease.
The Mets made it interesting on Wednesday night — they always seem to do at least that — but the bottom line in a 4-3 loss to the Washington Nationals was that Chris Young can’t go deep into games and the Mets bullpen can’t stop teams from scoring. New York put the two together and the result...

It’s all fun and games until the Mets find themselves a half a dozen games back in the division and fading. That’s certainly how it feels today as the Mets limp into DC with their season on the ropes. With six games against the NL East leading Washington Nationals over the next nine days, the Mets have to opportunity to claw their way back into the fight for the division, however...
