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.

U.S. Reps. Dennis Kucinich and Ted Poe are urging the Obama administration to demand that Citigroup drop its $400 million, 20-year naming rights deal for Citi Field, the New York Mets' new stadium scheduled to open in April, because of $45 billion the bank received in government aid. "At Citigroup, 50,000 people will lose their jobs. Yet in the boardroom of Citigroup, spending $400 million to put a name on stadium seems like a good idea," said Kucinich, an Ohio Democrat. Citigroup reached its agreement with the Mets 3 years ago. It is among several American banks that have received financial assistance from the federal government in recent months.

NEW YORK - Ruben Amaro Jr. sat in the visiting dugout at Citi Field a little more than 3 hours before first pitch yesterday, well aware of the "firestorm" he created about 100 miles south. In a story published on csnphilly.com yesterday morning, the embattled general manager was asked about his pitching prospects at Double A Reading, including rising righthanders Aaron Nola and Zach Eflin, and whether he was aware that a lot fans would prefer for him to be aggressive and bring them up to a major league club in need.

THE DARK KNIGHT of Gotham arrived to South Philly for the first time in nearly two years. But the leading man in the New York Mets' starting rotation doesn't work alone. It's "Matt Harvey Night" when he pitches at Citi Field. Last night, he brought a legion of followers with him down I-95. The blue that intermingled with red at Citizens Bank Park wasn't the empty seats that have become a common fixture to Phillies baseball in 2015. They were Mets fans, attempting the take over the 12-year-old ballpark like the bad ol' days at Veterans Stadium.

ATLANTA - Chase Utley took the field with the rest of his teammates for the routine pregame stretch last night at Turner Field. But his footwear choice stood out. While the rest of his teammates had their regular red spikes or turf shoes on, Utley had on a pair of standard tennis sneakers, more electric orange-red than team colors. When the rest of his teammates hit the field for batting and fielding practice, Utley retreated back to the dugout. "That's typical of him on an off day," manager Ryne Sandberg said of Utley giving his swing a complete rest.

There has been no temptation, manager Ryne Sandberg said, to drop Chase Utley in the Phillies lineup. Despite his early-season struggles - the 36-year-old second baseman ended an 0-for-21 slump Wednesday with a hit in his first at-bat - Utley has batted third in each of his 13 starts this season. "I can count maybe, I don't know, 10 or 12 balls that he's hit right on the nose since opening day," Sandberg said before Wednesday's game. "That's a good sign even though he has nothing to show for it. But then again, for me, he's always a threat every time he walks up to home plate.

AS 70-DEGREE weather finally arrives and area college students make the change from North Face jackets to Vineyard Vines shorts for the sunny end of the semester, a group of Villanova sophomores is bypassing the usual limp to the school year's finish line and doing something meaningful for those who serve their country. Jack McDonald's idea for the GI Tickets Foundation came about in the summer of 2011 in his native New Providence, N.J. McDonald, a sophomore accounting major, was caddying at a golf course for a Vietnam veteran whose son was serving in the armed forces and on his way back to the United States.

NEW YORK - The myth of Matt Harvey was born on the day the Mets drafted him in 2010. On a conference call with reporters that night, two of the team's scouts had to quell the fears and questions about a single game during Harvey's career at the University of North Carolina. Earlier that year, Harvey had thrown a startling 157 pitches in a complete-game victory over Clemson, and the scouts made a point to mention that Harvey had struck out 15, that his final pitch had been a 95-m.p.h.

NEW YORK - Ben Revere managed to work the count full in all four of his plate appearances yesterday. "Working the pitcher, work his pitch count up," he said afterward. "If you can do that, that's good. I didn't use to do that, but I think you get more mature, older . . . Last year watching Bobby Abreu and how he does it, that helped me out. " But all Revere could do when his fourth and final lengthy at-bat against the Mets came to an end yesterday afternoon in Citi Field was stare out in disbelief.

NEW YORK - The infielders, training staff and manager all converged on the Citi Field mound with Aaron Harang in the fourth inning. Harang, who will celebrate his 37th birthday next month, turned awkwardly after a comebacker ricocheted off his glove. The veteran righthander, who had two starts scratched this spring because of back problems, continued to pitch and afterward said there was nothing to worry about. The minor health scare was a blip on the radar for Harang, who has been a bright spot in the first week of the season for the Phillies.

NEW YORK - Four and a half years ago, the Phillies had a team chock-full of highly paid veterans but an organization lacking in near major league-ready talent on the farm. So coming off back-to-back World Series appearances, Ruben Amaro Jr., who had worked out a deal to bring Roy Halladay to Philadelphia, traded Cliff Lee to the Seattle Mariners for a package of three minor league prospects. Yesterday, nearly a half-decade later, the lessons from that trade, an unmitigated disaster, were briefly on display at Citi Field, where the Phillies were on the wrong end of a 11-2 drubbing at the hands of the New York Mets on the eve of Major League Baseball's trade deadline.
