NEW YORK, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Ryan Zimmerman's RBI single in the seventh inning Tuesday completed a comeback that carried the Washington Nationals to a 3-2 win over the New York Mets.

Trailing 2-0 in the sixth, the Nationals tied it up on RBI doubles from Rick Ankiel and Michael Morse.

Then in the seventh, pitcher Craig Stammen and Ian Desmond each stroked one-out singles off Dale Thayer (0-2). Zimmerman followed by greeting Mets closer Bobby Parnell with a hit through the left side that drove in Stammen with the go-ahead run.

Stammen (1-1) also earned the victory thanks to 1 1/3 frames in relief of starter Chien-Ming Wang, who had yielded two runs on nine hits over five innings.

Lucas Duda went 3-for-5 with a run-scoring single and Jose Reyes added three hits for the Mets, who dropped their fourth straight game and their sixth out of seven.
