WASHINGTON, April 28 (UPI) -- Daniel Murphy climaxed New York's four-run, ninth-inning rally with a two-run double Wednesday to give the Mets a 6-3 victory over Washington.
It was New York's sixth straight win.
Murphy hit a solo homer in the eighth to forge a 2-2 tie but Washington regained the lead in the bottom half of the inning on a sacrifice fly by Wilson Ramos.
Pinch-hitter Chin-lung Hu then delivered a sacrifice fly with Davis moving up to third on the play. Davis scored the go-ahead run on a groundout by Josh Thole and Jose Reyes was walked intentionally.
That strategy backfired when Murphy doubled home Harris and Reyes to give the Mets a three-run cushion.
Francisco Rodriguez gave up a one-out double in the bottom of the ninth but retired the next two batters for his sixth save.
The win went to Pedro Beato (1-0), who worked the eighth inning. It was his first major league victory.
