Former Kinston Indians Player Shines In Mets Win

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.
