After working all night to stay within striking distance of the Mets, the Nationals couldn't overcome their bullpen's mistakes in the end.
They lost 6-4 to the Mets, after Doug Slaten allowed two inherited runners to score and Sean Burnett gave up an inherited run in the ninth inning, hitting two batters after filling in for Brian Broderick. The loss was Washington's fifth in its last six games, and dropped the team to 10-12 for the season.
Jordan Zimmermann took the loss to fall to 1-4 for the season.
The Nationals homered three times in the loss, with Wilson Ramos posting the first two-homer game of his career. Byron Kerr and I will have more from the clubhouse in a little bit.
