Bernadina Goes Plus-6 To Lead Nats Over Mets 6-4

If stats from today's Mets/Nationals game were measure in plus/minus, like they do in hockey, Roger Bernadina would have been plus-6 on the day.  Today, Roger Bernadina led the Nationals to a 6-4 win over the Mets (box score/gametracker) with two homers and a huge run saving catch off of Francoeur with two outs and the bases loaded.  Bernadina finished the day with 3 RBI and robbed Francoeur of what would have been a base clearing extra base hit with the bases loaded...Sometimes you just have to tip your hat...

There's really nothing more to say here.  This was a stunning loss, as Bernadina, who'd never hit a major league homer prior to today, clubbed two to beat the Mets.  Shocking stuff.  It's just tough to swallow the Mets not winning a rubber game of a series yet this season...ugh.

I guess the only thing to do is move on and get ready to face the Marlins in a four game set starting tomorrow night in Miami.  Johan Santana will be facing Josh Johnson to start the series off.  It'll be a 7:10 start on SNY...
