Beat Up Mets Beat Nationals

By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Sports Writer
NEW YORK (AP) _ Jonathon Niese pitched seven sharp innings, some
of them in heavy rain, and Justin Turner added to his surprising
tear with a two-run double that sent the New York Mets to a 3-0
victory over the light-hitting Washington Nationals on Wednesday
night.

With maybe a few thousand hardy souls in the stands on another
wet night at Citi Field, the Mets’ depleted lineup scratched out
enough offense to help Niese (3-4) win his second consecutive
start.

Playing without injured regulars David Wright, Ike Davis and
Angel Pagan, New York won for the eighth time in 12 games and tied
Washington for fourth place in the NL East.
