Rod Barajas and Jeff Francoeur became the first Mets hitters to homer twice out of Citi Field in the same game, powering New York past the Washington Nationals, 8-2, on a windy night. Despite gusts well over 20 mph that knocked down fly balls and littered the field with hot dog wrappers, the Mets posted their first four-homer performance at the ballpark that opened in 2009. They totaled only 49 home runs last year in their new, spacious home. Barajas and Francoeur sent their shots to leftfield.

Fans at Citi Field booed the free-falling New York Mets even more loudly than they jeered Manny Ramirez - before he got ejected. Ramirez drove in three runs with two singles, then was ejected following his second called strikeout, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat what's left of the Mets, 8-0, last night. Clayton Kershaw (6-5) combined with three relievers on a four-hitter, pinch-hitter Blake DeWitt hit a seventh-inning homer off the front of the second deck in leftfield and Los Angeles twice scored with bases-loaded walks.

" Cotton candy!" "Get your hot dog!" "Cold beer here! "   THE SOUNDS in the stands of a baseball game at Citizens Bank Park are sometimes as intriguing as what is happening on the diamond. Vendors walk up and down the aisles - making sure fans are satisfied during the game - and they also throw in a bit of entertainment. Ted Schoening, one of those vendors, is being honored for his efforts. The Williamstown, N.J., resident was chosen to represent Philadelphia in New York for the All-Star Game.

NEW YORK - The perception of Matt Harvey has changed some since the Dark Knight made his return to an electric Citi Field for the April 14 New York Mets win over the Phillies. First, there was the innings limit stir last month created by the pitcher's agent, Scott Boras, who publicly asserted that the Mets star should not exceed 180 innings this season, his first since undergoing Tommy John surgery. (That controversy has since subsided, with Harvey set to go full-tilt in his postseason starts.)

NEW YORK - As Matt Harvey prepares to start Game 1 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday against the Chicago Cubs, the innings limit fiasco of last month appears far from everyone's minds. The New York Mets ace even lobbied manager Terry Collins to make him available to pitch out of the bullpen in Thursday's decisive division series Game 5 against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Between the regular season and his Game 3 start against the Dodgers, Harvey has logged 1941/3 innings in his first season back from Tommy John surgery.

NEW YORK — David Wright rounded first base, watched Curtis Granderson slide safely into second base, and clapped his hands. The New York Mets captain, who had battled injuries and endured eight consecutive seasons without a postseason appearance, had just broken open Game 3 of the World Series. Wright saved his signature playoff performance, a four-RBI game, for Friday night's record crowd at Citi Field, where the Mets kept their championship hopes alive with a 9-3 win over the Kansas City Royals.

TONIGHT'S PITCHERS Phillies RHP Roy Halladay vs. Mets RHP Jenrry Mejia (0-3, 3.86) WHO'S HOT: Shane Victorino: In three games in the leadoff spot, he is 8-for-16 with six runs, four steals and three RBI. WHO'S NOT: Roy Halladay: Yeah, it's a stretch. After all, he's pitched seven innings in each of his last three starts, and has recorded quality starts in two of him. But he's allowed at least at least three earned runs in three straight outings for the first time season.

NEW YORK - Odubel Herrera, an exuberant 5-foot-11 bundle, watched three Matt Harvey fastballs zip past. The Phillies centerfielder had looked lethargic in the season's first week. His aggressiveness is both a weapon and a detriment, but one swing could make a difference because the Phillies' arms had kept them close in another game. So, in the sixth inning Sunday of a 5-2 Phillies win over the Mets, Herrera waited. Harvey threw him a two-strike slider, low and inside. Herrera dropped the bat head.

NEW YORK - The temperature hovered at 40 degrees, and a stiff wind made it feel even colder inside Citi Field on Saturday night. The Phillies unpacked an old duffel bag labeled "MITTENS. " Some players wore ski masks. Others donned hoodies. But there was Vince Velasquez, a brash, 23-year-old Californian, in short sleeves. His tattooed right arm, filled with promise, was bare for the baseball world to see. And, after six dominant innings against the defending National League champions, a modicum of hope darted back to Philadelphia.

NEW YORK - When the second inning ended Friday, Jerad Eickhoff had thrown 50 pitches to record six outs. He could not command his fastball. His defense failed him. His mechanics were not crisp. It could have been worse. "I felt frustrated because I wasn't executing my fastball," Eickhoff said. "Most of the day, really, when I had to make a pitch I made a pitch, fortunately. " These games are about the development of potential pieces for the Phillies' future, and Eickhoff's season debut was incongruent.

NEW YORK - Daniel Murphy's otherworldly postseason, the home run binge that propelled his New York Mets to the World Series, had subsided against the Kansas City Royals. It took a drastic turn late in a pivotal Game 4 on Saturday night at Citi Field. Murphy's eighth-inning fielding error loomed large when the Royals came from behind to win, 5-3, and claim a three-games-to-one lead over the Mets. Kansas City will enter Game 5 on Sunday night with a chance to clinch its second World Series title and first since 1985.

After pitching Game 1 on Tuesday, the same day as his father's passing, Volquez returned home to the Dominican.

NEW YORK - Ned Yost did not expect New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard to throw a first-pitch strike to Alcides Escobar to open Game 3 of the World Series on Friday night. But the Kansas City Royals manager surely didn't expect a 98-m.p.h. fastball that buzzed his leadoff hitter's head. "But we've got a few tricks up our sleeves, too," Yost said before Game 4 on Saturday at Citi Field, a reference to Syndergaard's comments prior to Game 3. "Let's go with that. " A day after the Mets' 9-3 win, their first of the series, it was Syndergaard's purpose pitch and ensuing comments - "If they have a problem with me throwing inside, then they can meet me 60 feet, 6 inches away," he said - that dominated discussions leading into Game 4. The Royals took immediate offense to the pitch, which sailed to the backstop and left Escobar seated on his backside.

NEW YORK - The list of pitchers Daniel Murphy has tagged for home runs this postseason is similar to the National League Cy Young ballots submitted two weeks ago. Murphy, hero of these playoffs for the New York Mets, enhanced his resumé once again on a cold Sunday night with a homer off the mighty Jake Arrieta. The long ball, a two-run shot, set the tone early at Citi Field, where the Mets beat the Chicago Cubs, 4-1, to take a two-games-to-none lead in the National League Championship Series.

NEW YORK - The horde of photographers, television cameramen and iPhone-wielding reporters turned its attention toward the tarp covering the first-base line at Citi Field at about 6:15 p.m. Monday. Chase Utley had taken the field, clad in Los Angeles Dodgers blue, to stretch alongside his teammates. In the hours leading to first pitch of Game 3 of this National League division series, the 36-year-old second baseman and former Phillies star was again the center of attention. The ongoing appeal of his two-game suspension stemming from his controversial takeout slide on Saturday permitted Utley to play for the Dodgers on Monday.
