NEW YORK -- Smoke billowed out of the Washington Nationals clubhouse when the doors opened after yet another victory celebration in New York. The NL East leaders fog machine recently has been getting plenty of use. No special effects were needed on the field, though. Stephen Strasburg bounced back from one of his worst starts to pitch seven efficient innings, Bryce Harper and Adam LaRoche each hit a two-run homer, and the Nationals beat the New York Mets 4-1 Thursday night to set a franchise record with their 11th consecutive win on the road against one team. "We played really well here," manager Matt Williams said. "Now weve got to go do it at home." The Mets 11 straight losses to Washington in Queens are their most against one club at home. New York dropped 10 in a row to the Braves at Shea Stadium from 1991-92. Strasburg (9-10) gave up three hits and an unearned run, improving to 2-8 in 13 road starts this season. He struck out eight and walked two. Rafael Soriano was perfect in the ninth for his second straight save in the series and 28th overall. Washington finished a three-game sweep and increased its NL East lead to six games over Atlanta. LaRoche and Harper both connected after walks by Dillon Gee (4-5). LaRoche homered in the first and Harper hit a long drive to right-centre in the fourth. "It felt great," said Harper, who missed time with a thumb injury. "Thats one of the best balls Ive hit all year." The Nationals hit seven homers in the series, outscoring the Mets 14-4 and continuing a lopsided trend during a streak in New York that began June 30 last year. Washington has outscored the Mets 74-21 during the run at Citi Field, which now tops the Montreal Expos 10 road wins in a row against the Chicago Cubs from 1982-83. The Nationals are 25-4 at the Mets home since Sept. 12, 2011. The teams play four more times this year in New York and three more in Washington, where the Nationals have won four of six meetings. They lead the season series 10-2. "Theyve been a thorn in our side for the last two or three years for sure," Mets manager Terry Collins said. Strasburg was coming off an outing in which he allowed a career-high four homers and seven runs to Atlanta, but he was rarely in trouble Thursday, working his fastball to both sides of the plate. "I think I wanted to go out there and focus on the execution aspect and just pitch," Strasburg said, "make it a little harder for them to be comfortable." After a throwing error by shortstop Ian Desmond in the fourth, Lucas Duda hit a sacrifice fly that was caught just in front of the right-centre wall. TRAINERS ROOM Nationals: RF Jayson Werth missed his third straight game but said he felt 50 per cent better after getting a cortisone injection for his ailing right shoulder. Williams thinks Werth might be available to pinch-hit Friday against Pittsburgh and could even start Saturday. Mets: RHP Matt Harvey (Tommy John surgery) heard from his manager a day after the ace boasted on a radio program that he was throwing in the mid-90s (mph) during a rehabilitation session. The team is being especially cautious with Harvey since starter Jeremy Hefner had a recent setback in his recovery from similar elbow reconstruction. But Harvey still says he wants to pitch this season. "The process is, right now youve got to understand its the big picture, and the big picture is 2015. So back off," Collins said he told Harvey. UP NEXT Nationals: RHP Tanner Roark (11-7) faces the Pittsburgh Pirates for the first time. In his first year in the rotation, the 23-year-old has allowed one run or fewer in 13 of his 20 starts since April 21. Mets: RHP Zack Wheeler (7-8) faces the Cubs on Friday night. Wheeler pitched 6 2-3 innings of two-hit ball in his only start against Chicago on June 3, a game the Mets lost 2-1. GOING STREAKING David Wright singled in the first to extend his hitting streak to 13 games. Only one of the hits during the run was for extra bases, a double off Washingtons Craig Stammen last week. HOMER-HAPPY HARPER Harper also homered in the series opener, giving him two long balls in a series since April 25-28, 2013, against the Reds, STATS said.

Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca! Kerry, Id appreciate some clarification on when a ref is supposed to blow the whistle based on a player injury. Last night, Blues were on the power play, when a Blackhawks D blocked a puck with the side of his leg, went down, got up and skated for a bit, before going down again. Blues had possession the entire time, and the play was not near the defenseman on the ice. The referee blew the play dead (right after another Chicago player lost his stick, thus the refs turning a 5 on 2 back to a 5 on 4). Is play supposed to stop for a player who is able to skate (as he did after the shot block both prior to the whistle and again immediately following it) after he chooses to block a shot? Brandon Bell Hi Brandon, Regarding the play in question, we saw Hawks shot-blocker extraordinaire, Niklas Hjalmarsson rotate his body sideways, thereby exposing the unprotected area in the back of his right knee as Kevin Shattenkirk blasted a slapper from the point on the Blues power play. Taking a shot in this location causes the nerve endings in your leg to instantly go numb, resulting in "dead leg". Hjalmarssons wounded-deer attempt to defend reminded me of Gregory Campbells heroic broken leg defence in the playoffs last season. In Campbells case, the Refs allowed the play to continue while last night, play was stopped in the midst of a Blues scoring opportunity as Chris Stewart threw the puck into the slot past a fallen Hjalmarsson for a one-timer by Alexander Steen. The authority for the Officials to stop play is found in Rule 8.1: "In the case where it is obvious that a player has sustained a serious injury, the Referee and/or Linesman may stop the play immediately". In the judgment of the Referee last night, a serious enough injury was sustained by Hjalmarsson to kill the play. My preference would be to stop the play either prior to Stewarts centering pass from the corner or after allowing the scoring opportunity on the one-timer by Steen. Perhaps the memory of Campbell defending on a broken leg had some bearing on Refs decision to kill the play. Brandon, I have posted two articles from Cmon Ref archives that further explain when the Officials stop play due to a player injury. Fraser: Defining the rule for an injury stoppage in play Fraser: Blowing the play down on a player injury ----- Bonus Question of the Day: Hi Kerry, In Tuesdays game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Colorado Avalanche on TSN, whenever an Avalanche defender would be in their defensive zone with the puck setting up the play behind the net, their goalie Semyon Varlomov would be waving his hands to block the Maple Leaf player from seeing the Avalanche defender behind the net. To me, this is reminiscent of what happened between Martin Brodeur and Sean Avery in the 2008 playoffs when Avery toook screening the goalie to a level never seen before by facing Brodeur and using his stick and hands in an attempt to block Brodeurs view of everything.dddddddddddd That prompted the NHL to make a rule change: "An unsportsmanlike conduct minor penalty (Rule 75) will be interpreted and applied, effective immediately, to a situation when an offensive player positions himself facing the opposition goaltender and engages in actions such as waving his arms or stick in front of the goaltenders face, for the purpose of improperly interfering with and/or distracting the goaltender as opposed to positioning himself to try to make a play." I realize there are some differences here. The NHL wanted to protect a classy player as much as possible, especially from the potential of a goal scoring play. In the situation with Varlomov, its not the offensive zone and instead its a goalie doing the screening. But he is engaging in actions, such as waving his arms, for the purpose of interfering with and distracting the opposing player. Shouldnt any kind of actions like this be deemed unsportsmanlike? Its not like Varlomov is positioning himself to make a play. Why should only goalies be protected by this kind of behaviour which has nothing to do with hockey? Thanks Kerry, Steven Vandervelde Steven, The memo you referenced outlining the immediate actions Refs were to take if taunting and interference occurred following Sean Averys arm gestures in front of Martin Brodeur applies to all players in the broader sense. Goalkeepers are not immune to any of the playing rules, including interference and unsportsmanlike conduct. In a manner of speaking, whats good for the goose is good for the gander. Since the actions of goalie Semyon Varlomov were not in any way designed to stop the puck or tend his goal but instead solely for the purpose of distracting, interfering with or inciting his opponent, I would issue one warning to the goalkeeper at the first stoppage of play. Following the warning, if the negative behavior continued, I would immediately penalize the goalkeeper with an unsportsmanlike conduct. If I deemed that Varlomov legitimately interfered with the attacker (as opposed to just being a nuisance), I would penalize the goalie immediately without warning. There is plenty of language contained in the memo and Rule 75 to back the Referee up in making this call, including but not limited to, "Players and non-playing personnel are responsible for their conduct at all times and must endeavor to prevent disorderly conduct before, during or after the game, on or off the ice and any place in the rink. The Referees may assess penalties to any of the above team personnel for failure to do so." Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlomovs conduct fell into the disorderly category and, in the future, if the Referees dont properly address it, I fully would expect that some tough guy from the other team just might!
