Nats 4, Mets 2
We're in the bottom of the fourth at Tradition Field. Nats lead the Mets, 4-2. Here's your quick-hit recap of what we've seen so far...
Best Redemption: After a rough bottom third in the outfield -- he took bad paths toward two catchable NY liners, turning both into doubles -- left fielder Leonard Davis came up in the top of the fourth and homered to the opposite field. Leading off the inning, Davis blasted it about 10 feet over the left field wall, giving the Nats the 4-2 lead.
Best Sign That You Probably Don't Have A Good Shot At The Roster: Neither NY's starting shortstop nor its starting third baseman has his name on the back of his uniform. Both look like they're wearing Halloween costumes. Their secret identities: No. 88 Wilmer Flores and No. 95 Eric Campbell.
Best Survival: Though he allowed six hits -- including four in the third -- Nats starter Scott Olsen limited the damage, allowing two runs in his three innings. The Mets left six on base against Olsen.
Best Sunday Reunion: OK... no superlative necessary here. But it's a decent one. The Nats and Mets play again tomorrow, albeit in Viera. Livan Hernandez gets the nod for the Mets. Tim Redding is scheduled to throw tomorrow, too, but not against Washington. He's throwing in NYM's "B" game against the University of Michigan.
