Michael Wacha was too wild in the wind and Matt Carpenter got tagged out at the plate.
The only thing that stopped Adam Wainwright from throwing his second straight shutout was a hyperextended right knee.
The way Curtis Granderson and the New York Mets are swinging, Adam Wainwright figured to be a tough chore Tuesday night.
With a 360-foot relay in the ninth inning, the New York Mets prevented a hard-fought victory from vanishing in the wind.
Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols entered this week's series at Nationals Park needing just two home runs to reach the magic 500 mark. He got both on Tuesday night off Washington starting pitcher Taylor Jordan. Pujols, 34, became just the 26th player in baseball history to hit 500 homers.
The St. Louis Cardinals promoted left-hander Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis and started him Monday night against the New York Mets.
Bobby Abreu got a quick lesson in the Mets' many uniform color combinations from an equipment guy, tried on a few belts in the clubhouse and then hugged new teammate Bartolo Colon.
The only thing Jenrry Mejia popped Monday night was his fastball.
Denard Span's approach with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning proves math pays off.
Denard Span hit a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning and the Washington Nationals, with Bryce Harper back in the lineup, rallied past the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Sunday.
Nursing a 3-1 lead in the top of the eighth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals - a team they had not beaten in eight consecutive tries - the Nationals nearly saw it slip away. Struggling relief pitcher Tyler Clippard took over for starter Gio Gonzalez to begin the inning, and needed 26 pitches to record his first out. He began by allowing a double to Jon Jay, a hard-hit liner off the Geico sign in right field. Jay took eight pitches before getting hold of a 81 mile per hour changeup.
Lance Lynn was sharper than he had had been all season, which made it all the more frustrating for him when he failed to make it out of the sixth inning.
Bryce Harper hit the ball to the mound, jogged to first base and took a right turn to the dugout before getting halfway down the basepath.
There's a simple reason St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha felt comfortable putting a changeup in the ground with the bases loaded in the seventh inning of a tie game.
Anthony Rendon homers and Drew Storen escapes a second-and-third threat in the eighth inning to help Washington secure a 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. That snapped an eight-game losing streak against St. Louis dating to the 2012 playoff loss at Nationals Park.
