(Sean Burnett turned a 3-2 game into a 6-3 disaster in the 9th. Screen grab via TV/MASN.)
Mets 6, Nationals 3: Clippard blows a lead in the 8th; Burnett blows the game in the 9th.
All the breaks kept going the Nats' way until the 9th. And then Jim Riggleman forgot about Drew Storen, and Sean Burnett melted down.
That thud you just heard is the sound of the Nationals taking up residence in last place in the NL East.
