Nationals Vs. Mets Final Score: Washington Falls 1-0, Drops To Last In NL East

The Washington Nationals managed to avoid getting no-hit against the New York Mets on Thursday afternoon, but that's about the only silver lining they can take. The Nationals couldn't manage a hit against Mets started Dillon Gee until the sixth inning and had just three hits total in a 1-0 loss. 

The Nationals drop to 20-23 on the year, one game behind the Mets for last place in the NL East. Livan Hernandez was the hard-luck loser, giving up just one run in seven innings to drop to 3-6 on the year. Gee moves to 3-0 on the year, giving up just two hits in seven and two-thirds innings.

The Mets got their only run in the bottom of the fourth inning. They put two runners on base with two out, and Justin Turner lined a single up the middle to score John Thole. The Nationals threatened in the ninth inning when Laynce Nix hit a one-out double, but Jayson Werth was victimized by a questionable call on a ground ball for the second out. It looked like Daniel Murphy's foot came off the bag, but Werth was ruled out. Adam LaRoche then grounded out to end the game.


Nationals Vs. Mets: Nats Try To Bounce Back From Shutout In Afternoon Tilt

The Washington Nationals will try to get their offense back on track when they face the New York Mets at Citi Field in a game that starts at 1 p.m. and can be seen on MASN.

The story of this game, as it has been for the past few games it seems, will be the weather. The forecast shows rain again this afternoon. But based on what we saw at the end of the game last night, the stadium officials are, let's just say hesitant, to call a game. They are sort of like the opposite of the Nationals in that way.

The Nats will send old reliable Livan Hernandez to the mound this afternoon. He's the only guy I think won't have any trouble with the rain, because it doesn't seem like he lets that kind of stuff affect him. His counterpart will be Dillon Gee, whom the Nats have only faced one time before. That was his major league debut last September when he allowed just two hits over seven innings. Hopefully they have a little bit more film on him this time.

We'll be following this game in this stream, but you can head over to Federal Baseball for more information on the Nationals.
