Unhappy Recap: Nationals 3 Mets 2

Another quiet night for the Mets bats. They have scored 3 or fewer runs in 7 of the last 8 games and lost 6 of those games. The only offense in this one came from Endy Chavez (3 hits) and Ricky Ledee who hit a solo home run. Even worse, the lack of offense came off former Mets cast off Pedro Astacio.

One positive sign, El Duque pitched well and deep again. He pitched 7 innings, allowing 3 runs, only one walk and striking out 7. Of his last 10 starts, 8 have been "quality" starts, one he gave up 1 run in 5 1/3 innings and the other one was his disaster in Philadelphia. The general consensus is that he is a big game pitcher and right now he seems the most reliable option for the playoffs.
