    Ryan Zimmerman hit his 9th career walk-off home run. He leads the majors in walk-off homers since his debut in 2005.

    Daniel Murphy: 4th Mets second baseman with a 4-hit, 5-RBI game. The other 3 are Ken Boswell (1971), Gregg Jefferies (1989) and Edgardo Alfonzo (1999). Alfonzo went 6-for-6 with 3 HR in his game against the Astros. Murphy is one of three Mets second basemen with 4 hits, 5 RBI AND 2 HR in a game, along with Jefferies and Alfonzo Only other 2nd baseman to have such a game against the Expos/Nationals was Marcus Giles of the Braves in 2003. 1st second baseman this season with a 4-hit, 2-HR 5-RBI game. Robinson Cano was last player to have one (last October 3).
    Matt Harvey has allowed 1 or fewer runs in 13 starts this season. In those 13 games, Harvey has 6 wins, 6 no-decisions (including tonight) and 1 loss.
