It started as an infield single, then a basehit, then another. Before long, a one-run lead for the Nationals had melted into a three-run deficit.
It's funny how fast things can snowball.
Sean Burnett certainly can't be feeling too jovial. He lasted just 2/3 innings, but surrendered four earned runs on four hits as the Mets jumped out in front and never looked back in a 6-3 win.
It had been just an inning before when Daniel Murphy hit a solo shot in the eighth inning to tie the game at 2-2 (it would've been a go-ahead bomb if Jose Reyes hadn't been called out on a controversial call at third base.)
Unfortunately for the Nationals, the fortunate call was moot, as they fall in a winnable game and will look to take the series finale tomorrow night.
