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.

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.

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.

The recent boom in craft whiskey has had major ripple effects for businesses on the nondistilling periphery of the industry - including a wooden-tank manufacturer that is one of Philadelphia's oldest businesses. The Hall-Woolford Tank Co., which turned 160 years old this year, has been making wooden tanks in Northeast Philadelphia since before Abe Lincoln was president. Most of those, until recently, have been water tanks like those seen on rooftops in New York City, including those at the Mets' Citi Field.

PAUL ISENBERG is no Cole Hamels. Thankfully, he's no 50 Cent either. Isenberg, the co-founder of the charity Bringing Hope Home, threw a lazer of a ceremonial first pitch to the Phanatic at yesterday's Phillies-Mets game at Citizens Bank Park. Before the game, he said he felt no pressure. "I'm not nervous," said the 49-year-old Isenberg, who played 4 years of football at West Chester University. "I was thinking, 'When will I ever get this opportunity again?' " Well, after yesterday's striking performance he may be asked to return next week.

NEW YORK - The Yasiel Puig show visited the Big Apple this week, and for ESPN's "Wednesday Night Baseball" broadcast, the network employed an iso-cam on the world's most polarizing outfielder. While Jon Sciambi and Rick Sutcliffe called the Dodgers-Mets game from a Citi Field booth, analyst Doug Glanville was stationed out in centerfield, two TV monitors situated in front of him on a makeshift desk, with an unclouded perspective of Puig and his outfield counterparts. At home in his former position, Glanville, the former Phillies centerfielder, was tasked with evaluating the defensive performances of the game's six outfielders, among other things.

THE PHILLIES entered the ninth inning of Sunday's game at Citi Field against the Mets armed with a three-run lead, but with three of their top relievers unavailable. Jake Diekman and Mike Adams had thrown 51 combined pitches on Saturday, and had pitched Friday, too. Closer Jonathan Papelbon threw 21 total pitches in those games, but was also unavailable, since he said he was dealing with soreness. Antonio Bastardo blew the three-run lead, the Phillies lost in extra innings and failed to complete a sweep.

Ryne Sandberg lost six pounds in two days, and it was not from the stress of a distasteful loss Sunday. The Phillies manager ate a Shake Shack burger in the Citi Field clubhouse and developed food poisoning. The Mets and Shake Shack are investigating the situation, officials said. "I had one piece of toast in two days, and I'm feeling fine about that," Sandberg said. "I don't want anything in my stomach. " Jonathan Papelbon's soreness Sunday presented a bigger problem for Sandberg.

NEW YORK - Yesterday afternoon, the starting pitcher who threw 99 pitches 2 days earlier was available to pitch out of the bullpen, but the closer who threw a total of 21 pitches over 2 nights was not. Roberto Hernandez was summoned into yesterday afternoon's game in the ninth inning in an attempt to avoid further disaster. He pitched admirably in relief of Antonio Bastardo, but the runner he inherited scored, sending the game to extra innings. Jonathan Papelbon's curious unavailability loomed larger when the Phillies were unable to hold a three-run lead in the ninth inning of a game they eventually lost, 5-4, in 11 innings.

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.
