Ryan Church homered, doubled and drove in four runs against his former team and John Maine pitched six sharp innings to lead the New York Mets over the Washington Nationals 6-3 Tuesday night.
Maine (5-2) was mostly dominant for his second straight start, allowing just two runs -- one earned -- and two hits and retiring 11 of the last 12 batter he faced after giving up Ryan Zimmerman's two-run homer to left in the third.
John Lannan (3-4), 3-1 with a 2.17 ERA in five previous starts, gave up 12 hits and four runs in six innings.
