9.10.13 – Nationals 6, Mets 3

Stat of the Game: Jayson Werth hit his team-leading 23rd home run and doubled twice, raising his slash line to .328/.401/.548.

Under-the-Radar Performance: Scott Hairston delivered a pinch-hit home run in the ninth to provide a pair of insurance runs.

It Was Over When: Rafael Soriano locked down the save with a scoreless ninth, becoming the third Nationals closer to record at least 40 saves in a season.

Dan Haran is scheduled to pitch Wednesday nights game. If it was not for the 13 million dollar contract Rizzo gave him he probably would have been pulled from the rotation. I have a feeling that the Nats will need all of Ross Ohlendorf’s services and all of the offensive punch they can muster tonight because the Reds have already won their game with the Cubs. Note to the Lerner’s for next season: Hire an outside consulting firm to hire free agents. Don’t let Rizzo make those choices anymore.
