The Nationals last eight games have all been decided by two runs or less. They’re 5-3 in that run, notching the 6-4 victory today at Citi Field versus the Mets to add to the win count.

Washington is now in sole possession of second place in the NL East. Tyler Clippard leads the league in wins with seven. Matt Capps leads the league in saves with fourteen. But the real story of the day goes to Roger Bernadina who hit his first two career homers with a solo shot  in the fourth and a 2-run blast in the 9th to put the Nats ahead, not to mention a heroic diving catch in right field during the fifth.

Starter Craig Stammen also helped himself out with two hits and three RBI’s during today’s rubber game.

The Nationals are now 19-15. The next game is 8:40 EDT against Colorado from the road.

  1. Strasburg threw 6 no-hit innings at AAA tonight. Hope the Nats give us plenty of lead time before he makes his first start here so I can get a good seat!
