Unhappy Recap: Nationals 13 Mets 4

For three innings this looked like it was going to be a great start for Mike Pelfrey, but in the fourth inning he allowed 3 hits and 2 runs, one of which scored only because of an error by Moises Alou.

But Pelfrey got out of it and through 4 2/3 innings it looked like it was going to be a solid start from Mike Pelfrey, but then he walked Zimmerman and Church and gave up a 3 run homer to Austin Kearns.

But Pelfrey got out of it and 5 2/3 innings it looked like it was at least going to a 6 inning start from Pelfrey but then he walked D'Angelo Jimenez (his 5th walk of the game) and that was it for Pelfrey. Joe Smith came on and allowed a double to Mets nemesis Ronnie Belliard to make the score 7-1.

The Mets almost staged a comeback in the bottom of the 6th but with the bases loaded and one out, Reyes and Castillo grounded out, cutting the lead to only 7-3.

Feliciano got through the 7th inning but walked and hit a better to start the 8th. Mota came on and got two outs before allowing doubles to Belliard (again) and Church which made the score 10-3.

But the bullpen wasn't done. Dave Williams pitched the 9th and allowed a 3-run homer to Ryan Langerhans.

Moises Alou extended his hitting streak to 28 games.
