Happy Recap: Mets 4 Nationals 3

A good performance by John Maine will give him some confidence because he most likely earned himself a playoff spot with his work in this game. He still tends to struggle with his concentration which manifested itself in a 2 run fourth inning in which he walked 2 batters and threw a wild pitch. But hopefully once the playoffs start he will bear down.

The bullpen was great again. Pedro Feliciano won his 7th game. Guillermo Mota pitched a perfect 8th and has allowed only 2 runs in 17 innings as a member of the Mets. Billy Wagner saved his 40th game, and 18th in a row and has put those early season struggles behind him. With 40 saves and a 2.24 ERA he could get some votes for Cy Young in a year when the field is very weak.
