WASHINGTON -- Juan Lagares was ready to contribute when given the opportunity. "I know I can play. Thats what I do. Thats what Im here for," Lagares said after driving in three runs with a homer and a single and robbing Washingtons Jayson Werth of a home run in New Yorks 5-2 win on Saturday. Lagares came in 5 for 27 in his past 11 games, but he provided a jolt for the struggling Mets. He singled in a run during a three-run first and homered with one on and one out in the third to give New York a 5-0 lead. Hes batting .304 for the season. "Well, hell play tomorrow," Mets manager Terry Collins said to laughter following the game. "He had a good game. Thats great. Thats why we put him in there today," Collins added. "Gios not easy to hit, but hes got a (better) chance to have some success against lefties than he has been against righties, so I let him in there." The Mets outfielder took a homer away from Werth with a leaping catch against the wall in centre. "Im not surprised by anything he does defensively, not a thing," said Collins, who also praised Lagares for his offensive work this week with assistant hitting coach Luis Natera. "I try to be positive, try to do my work in the cage and try to be ready for the opportunity," Lagares said. "Thats the key, be positive and keep working." Bartolo Colon (3-5) allowed two runs and five hits over eight innings as New York snapped a three-game losing streak and won for the first time in 10 tries against Washington. Rookie Eric Campbell drove in two runs and had his first two-hit game, and Daniel Murphy added two hits as well for New York. Colon, who turns 41 next week, came in 0-2 with an 8.31 ERA (17 runs in 17 1-3 innings) in three starts this month -- all on the road. On Saturday, he retired the last 11 hitters he faced. "He made big pitches, he pitched ahead," Collins said. "You know, you looked up and you saw he had 70 pitches, you kind of figured hes on his game." Jenrry Mejia pitched the ninth for his first career save. Ian Desmond had two hits, including a two-run homer, for Washington. Gio Gonzalez (3-4) took the loss, suffering his second straight poor start. Coming off a 9-1 loss at Oakland in which he allowed seven earned runs in five plus innings, he lasted just three innings Saturday. "Arm slot wasnt where I wanted it to be. Up in the strike zone the entire time, falling behind on everyone. You can see it just wasnt a good game at all," Gonzalez said after allowing five earned runs and seven hits. The Mets scored one more run in the first inning Saturday than they had in the previous 27 combined. With one out, Murphy lined a single to centre and David Wright followed with an infield hit between first base and the mound. After Chris Young walked, Campbell sent a single to centre to score Murphy and Wright. Lagares, in the starting lineup for the first time since Tuesday, blooped a single to right, scoring Young with the third run. It marked the 10th time this season that Washington had allowed three or more runs in the first inning. In the third, Campbell singled with one out and Lagares drove a 3-2 fastball into centre. Desmonds homer in the fourth pulled the Nationals within 5-2. Werths leaping catch at the wall with two outs in the ninth preserved Friday nights 5-2 Washington win. He was the victim on Saturday, however, when he appeared to pull the Nationals within 5-3 with a drive to centre to open the sixth, but Lagares raced to the wall, leaped and reached back to grab the drive. "I know he hit it good," Lagares said. "I just go like I always go, hard, and try to make the catch." NOTES: Craig Stammen pitched four innings of scoreless relief for the Nationals. ...

PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Girouxs teammates had a feeling he would end his 21-game goal drought Saturday. "I knew he was going to score tonight," Wayne Simmonds said. "I think he could kind of feel it. Hes getting a million chances all year long, and then finally he put that one in." Girouxs third-period goal in the Flyers 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers was his first of the season, and first since April 15. Jay Rosehill, Scott Hartnell and Vinny Lecavalier also scored for the Flyers, who had more than two goals for only the second time in 16 games this season. But for Giroux, the goal was more than a goal. "It was obviously a lot of relief," Giroux said. "To see all the boys on the bench being happy too, I think that was really fun. But you know what, its a big win for us. And we go on the road now, and weve got to get on a roll here." David Perron and Taylor Hall scored for Edmonton. Ilya Bryzgalov, the former Flyers goalie who signed with the Oilers on Friday, was not at the game. The game marked the Flyers first win at the Wells Fargo Center since Oct. 24 against the New York Rangers, and ended a stretch of 175:22 during which they had gone without a goal at home -- a franchise record. They seemed to surprise the Oilers, who were expecting to face far less pressure from a Flyers team that ranks last in the NHL in goals per game. "That was a team that had been described as fragile," Hall said. "But I thought they came out and played really hard and won a lot more battles than we did." The Oilers, actually, controlled the pace early. It wasnt until Giroux drew an interference call on Anton Belov at 7:20 of the first period that his team woke up. The Flyers didnt score during the power play, but Rosehill did at 11:56, just moments later. Mark Streit, who set up Rosehills goal, also set up the goal that followed it with a cross-ice pass to Hartnell at 17:16. The Flyers first period was their first multi-goal period since they hosted the Anaheim Ducks on Oct. 29. It was the fourth period all season the team scored more than a single marker. "Probably everybodys a little bit surprised with their struggles with scoring so far this year with the personnel they haave," Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk said.dddddddddddd Despite being largely outplayed in the games final two periods, the Oilers managed to stay within a goal for most of the afternoon. They cut the Flyers lead in half when Perron scored on the power play at 18:25 of the second period. Third periods have been the Flyers worst all season - as a number of players have said, theyve often found ways to lose. But they took to heart words that were shared during a players-only meeting Thursday, and hit the ice with confidence in the third period. Facing the NHLs worst defence didnt hurt, either. "The attitude in the room, if they get a late goal, usually were kind of down," Giroux said. "They got a late goal in the second, and you know what, the attitude was great. I was responsible for that goal at the end of the second, and guys stayed positive, and we just stayed with it and kept playing our game." Giroux, at 11:26, was the Flyer who beat Dubnyk next, to bring the score to 3-1. The crowd rose to its feet and stayed there as Giroux was greeted by Steve Mason, who left his crease to congratulate his captain. Mason finished with 24 saves. Hall again cut the Flyers lead to a single goal at 13:25, but it didnt last. Lecavaliers shot at 16:33 flew high over Dubnyks shoulder, and the Oilers simply couldnt fight their way out of their own zone in the little time that remained. With the win, the Flyers improved to 5-9-1. The Oilers (4-12-2) are last the Western Conference. For the Flyers, the win is something to build upon as they embark on a three-game trip, starting Tuesday in Ottawa. "Its great," Hartnell said. "We didnt hear a boo all night here at home, first time in a long time. Our efforts havent been great at home and we wanted a big effort 60-minute game and thats something we did tonight. "We have to continue that and carry that forward." NOTES: Edmontons Luke Gazdic (shoulder) left the game in the second period and did not return. Belov received a match penalty for a hit on Giroux. . The game was just the seventh of 16 this season in which the Flyers scored more than one goal. ... Edmontons power-play goal at 18:25 of the second period snapped a streak of 14 consecutive penalties killed by the Flyers over three-plus games. ' ' '
