7,724: K-Rod’s 9th-inning pick-off gives Mets win

Walk-off pick-off

Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez picked Roger Bernadina off second base Friday to avoid a ninth-inning collapse and give the New York Mets a 5-3 win over the Washington Nationals.

Starter Jonathon Niese threw seven innings of one-run ball, yielding just six hits and no walks while striking out eight. He lost his no-no right away when Nyjer Morgan led off with a single, advancing our NoNoHitters.com count to 7,724 New York Mets games with no no-hitter.

Alex Cora drove in three runs in the fourth with a triple to deep right, and Niese helped his own cause by following up with a double.
