Bryce Harper had his first four-hit game and pinch-hitter Tyler Moore launched a go-ahead homer off R.A. Dickey in the seventh inning to send the Washington Nationals past the punchless New York Mets 5-3 on Tuesday night.
Collin McHugh pitched two-hit ball over seven scoreless innings for the Mets in his major league debut, but the Colorado Rockies completed their second straight four-game sweep of New York with a 1-0 victory Thursday as Jordany Valdespin misplayed Tyler Colvin's leadoff drive in the eighth into a game-changing triple.
Bryce Harper homered his first time up in New York, then hit a tiebreaking single to key a six-run burst in the 10th inning Monday night that sent the Washington Nationals over the Mets 8-2.

Pinch hitter Nick Evans hit a tiebreaking double in the seventh inning, rewarding R.A. Dickey for an effective start and helping the New York Mets beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 on Wednesday.
He also pointed out that the Mets are starting to turn things around by following his patient approach.
"You have to make that play," Tejada said.
