Mets Vs. National Final Score: Mets Walk Off With Fourth Straight Win

Daniel Murphy hit a walk off single in the ninth inning to push the New York Mets past the Washington Nationals 4-3 on Monday night, their fourth victory in as many games to start the 2012 MLB season.

Mike Pelfrey threw 104 pitches in his start for New York, allowing three earned runs in five and two thirds innings of work. He also registered a double at the plate and scored a run.

24-year old outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who was called up on Saturday because of an injury to Andre Torres', hit his first major league home run, a two run shot in the fourth inning to tie the game at three.

Edwin Jackson, whom the Nationals landed on a one-year free agent deal this offseason, lasted just five innings in his Washington debut.

These two teams will continue their series on Tuesday.
