Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the first 4 innings of the game. The Mets offense took care of business early by scoring in each of the first 4 innings. By the time the Nationals came to bat in the bottom of the 4th inning they were down 8-0 which was too much for them to overcome.
Game Ball: Jason Bay: 2-5 | 4 RBI
Hisanori Takahashi: 5 IP | 5 H | 3 ER | 7 SO.
Francisco Rodriguez picked up his 20th save of the season.
David Wright continues to hit well: 2-5 | 2 Runs.
Angel Pagan had a good game at the plate: 3-5 | 2 RBI.
Jose Reyes sat out his fifth game in a row with a stiff back.
Mets are now 18-24 on the road this season.
Before the game it was announced that David Wright (starter) and Jose Reyes (reserve) made the 2010 National League All-Star team.
