Conforto's 2 home runs power Mets past Nationals 5-3

WASHINGTON (AP) Michael Conforto hit two home runs and slumping Jose Reyes also connected, leading the New York Mets over the Washington Nationals 5-3 Saturday.

The banged-up Mets had lost six in a row when they began this series at Nationals Park against the team with the best record in the majors. Behind their power and bullpen, the Mets beat Washington for the second straight day.

The Nationals also got steamed over a no-call involving a steal by Jayson Werth in the fourth inning. Werth swiped second as Jose Lobaton struck out, and got up and banged into shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera when the throw skipped away. Werth kept heading to third and was thrown out by a wide margin, and argued along with Washington manager Dusty Baker that he should've been awarded the base because of obstruction.
