Redding solid in loss
Mets 3, Nationals 1
Tim Redding lowered his ERA to 2.64 after allowing just one run in six innings. (Ed Betz/AP)
 Lopez's solo homer
Tim Redding, who tied a career high with eight strikeouts, stifled the Mets through six strong innings, but unfortunately, the Nats couldn't do much against Mets starter Orlando Hernandez, who limited Washington to a solo home run by Felipe Lopez in the seven innings. Saul Rivera allowed two runs in the seventh for the loss.
