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.

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.

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.

It may not be the World Series ring he really wants (and still has a kind of outside chance at getting), but the Washington Nationals found a way to give retiring manager Davey Johnson a nice going-away gift: pounding the heck out of those New York Mets. The Nats outhomered the Mets, 13-0, in a four-game sweep capped with a 7-2 win on Thursday afternoon - the 70-year-old Johnson's last game managing in New York. Johnson, who famously led the Mets to the 1986 World Series championship, is stepping down due to an aching back.

NEW YORK - Exactly a month from today, Ryne Sandberg will report to Turner Field for the final game of the 2013 season. It's the same place Charlie Manuel managed his last game in a Phillies uniform. When he stepped in for Manuel 2 weeks ago, Sandberg was given the interim-manager tag. He may very well have the same interim status attached to his position a month from today, too. "He didn't talk about that," Sandberg said yesterday when asked if general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. gave him any indication of how or when he could find out about his long-term job prognosis.

NEW YORK - They lived in Clearwater, Fla., at a place called the Buena Vista Hotel, a fine establishment that is now a TraveLodge on U.S. 19. "Oh, yeah," Jake Diekman said. "It was wonderful. They had a room catch on fire in 2008. One of the players lost, like, everything. " That was their introduction to professional baseball. The 2007 Gulf Coast League Phillies walked 10 minutes to the ballpark. Not counting rehabilitation players, 44 men played on that team. The three members in the majors - Diekman, Justin De Fratus, and Travis d'Arnaud - reunited Monday at Citi Field.

NEW YORK - The five TVs in the visitors' clubhouse at Citi Field showed a news conference happening in a room down the hallway, and many Phillies paused to watch this cruel game seize another promising arm. There is a torn ligament in Matt Harvey's right elbow. One of baseball's best pitchers may require Tommy John surgery. Michael Young clutched a bat, glanced at one TV, and sighed. Weeks earlier, from the same spot, the Phillies infielder shook his head while contemplating how one is supposed to hit a 93-m.p.h.

NEW YORK - On July 19, the Phillies basked in a convincing victory over the New York Mets with overwhelming optimism. They were managed by Charlie Manuel, sat one game over .500, and talked about adding talent at the trade deadline. The next day, Zack Wheeler beat them. The Phillies proceeded to lose 13 of 14 games in a franchise-altering crash that served as the backdrop for a trivial 2-1 victory Monday over Wheeler at Citi Field. Cody Asche was a triple-A player when the Phillies last visited; now he is a crucial protagonist.

NEW YORK - Ryne Sandberg went to 10 All-Star Games and won nine Gold Gloves as a second baseman. But Sandberg made his first 128 major league starts at third base, and thus has some working knowledge of what it's like to be a young player at an infield position that can be unforgiving if you're unprepared. Sandberg has repeatedly raved about rookie Cody Asche. "He's the full package down there at third base," said the Hall of Fame player-turned-manager. Asche has dazzled with his glove for a month.

A YEAR AGO, Ike Davis hit 32 home runs for the Mets. Now, batting .176 in a season that has seen him sent to the minor leagues, the slugging first baseman is doing anything he can to get on base. Twice, he tried to bunt for a hit against visiting Atlanta. His first try went foul. The second went to the pitcher, who threw him out. And the Citi Field faithless let their favorite whipping boy have it with choruses of boos on each try. It was different in the sixth inning, when his RBI double off the rightfield wall drove in the go-ahead run and triggered a three-run rally in the Mets' 4-1 win. Davis was given a huge ovation as he stood on second base.

NEW YORK - Phillies righthander Roy Halladay threw his first bullpen session since undergoing shoulder surgery on May 15. According to Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee, Halladay threw 20 pitches, all fastballs. The session was on Sunday morning, hours before the Phillies' 5-0 loss to the New York Mets at Citi Field. Dubee won't set a timetable for Halladay's return, but he said he was encouraged by what he saw. "It's a start," Dubee said. "He will determine how fast he will go by how he is feeling and as we increase reps.

NEW YORK - The Phillies have won four consecutive series. To make it a fifth, they will have to beat one of the brightest young stars in the game after splitting their first two games with the New York Mets. On Sunday, Cliff Lee (10-3, 2.86) will oppose Mets righthander Matt Harvey (7-2, 2.35) at Citi Field. Harvey is coming off a sparkling performance at his home stadium with two shutout innings during Tuesday's All-Star Game. Phillies leftfielder Domonic Brown saw Harvey at his best firsthand as his all-star teammate.

NEW YORK - The Phillies trudged from the dugout stove to the boiling field Saturday in the middle of the sixth inning, and Jonathan Papelbon joined them. He makes his trek to the bullpen at that moment every day. More than half of the season's 162 games will end without Papelbon, their sixth-most expensive player, ever throwing a pitch. Yet Papelbon should be a prized trade commodity this July. There are two robust American League teams, Detroit and Boston, devoid of a stable closing presence.
