WASHINGTON -- Bryce Harper swung at the 91 mph pitch in the bottom of the 13th inning and could tell right away the ball would end up over the fence. Nolan Ryan Jersey . "I knew it was gone. I mean, I felt it," the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year said. "I havent felt like that in a while. I havent got extension on a ball in a pretty long time." Harpers fourth homer of an injury-interrupted, trying season was a game-ending, two-run shot to the opposite field off righty reliever Carlos Torres, lifting Washington past the New York Mets 5-3 Thursday and giving the Nationals a season-high 4 1/2-game lead in the NL East. "Wanted to put a two-seamer down and away," said Torres (5-5), who struck out Harper on Wednesday. "It didnt move that much, unfortunately." Harper was hitting .250 with 14 RBIs in 2014 entering Thursday, with zero homers since July 18. "Hopefully he rides that for the next couple months and (we) sail off into the sunset," said Ian Desmond, who walked ahead of Harpers homer. Desmond drove in Washingtons first three runs with a two-run homer in the second inning, his 18th, and an RBI single in the fourth -- both off Mets starter Jacob deGrom. So can one swing change things for Harper? "In my mind, Im hoping so. Definitely," he said. Harper missed 57 games because of a torn ligament in his left thumb, returning June 30. He immediately caused a stir that day by publicly offering suggestions for how Williams should arrange his lineup. This week, the morning after Harper went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts in a loss to the Mets on Tuesday, Williams was asked on radio station 106.7 The Fan whether it would be a bad idea to send Harper to the minors. When a reporter followed up during Williams pregame news conference Wednesday, the manager vented, saying: "The minute you think you can read my freaking mind, youre sorely mistaken." At the end of his postgame session with reporters Thursday, Williams offered an unprompted mea culpa, saying: "I didnt sleep much last night. So I just wanted to apologize to members of the press for my actions yesterday." The Nationals now head into a three-game series beginning Friday at the reeling second-place Atlanta Braves. Atlanta was off Thursday after an 0-8 road trip against the Dodgers, Padres and Mariners. "Theyre going to want our throat," Harper said. Said Craig Stammen (2-4), who worked three scoreless innings for the win Thursday: "We know these three games will be big because theyre right on our tails." He was Washingtons seventh pitcher. The Mets used eight. Closer Jenrry Mejia left after giving up two hits in his only inning of work, the 12th, and said afterward his right calf was "just a little bit tight." Hours after he left the mound following his 6 1-3 innings of work, Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann was thrilled with the way Harper ended the game. "Were all pulling for him," Zimmermann said. "Hopefully he gets out of this little rut hes in." TRAINERS ROOM Mets: About Mejia, whose right calf was taped up after the game, manager Terry Collins said: "Well find out more tomorrow. If its still bothering him, he certainly wont pitch tomorrow." Nationals: Reserve outfielder Nate McLouth (15-day DL, right shoulder) got an anti-inflammatory injection and was "shut down for a few days to get everything calmed down in there," Williams said. UP NEXT Nationals: Stephen Strasburg (8-9, 3.39 ERA) faces Atlantas Ervin Santana (10-6, 3.59 ERA) in Fridays opener at Atlanta. In 14 career starts against the Braves, Strasburg is 3-5 with a 4.04 ERA, his highest ERA against any team hes faced more than three times. Mets: In the opener of a four-game set at the Phillies, 41-year-old righty Bartolo Colon (10-9, 4.12 ERA) makes his second attempt at career victory No. 200. Huston Street Jersey . The Padres made the moves before Fridays game at Washington. They promoted infielder Jace Peterson from Double-A San Antonio and right-hander Kevin Quackenbush from Triple-A El Paso. Yunel Escobar Jersey . Since coming to the big leagues in late May, La Stella is 6 for 7 with the bases loaded, driving in 13 runs in those at-bats. http://www.baseballangelslockroom.com/brandon-phillips-angels-jersey/ . The 49ers announced the deal Tuesday. San Francisco selected Lloyd in the fourth round of the 2003 draft.NEWARK, N.J. -- Providing a highlight reminiscent of his heyday, Jaromir Jagr showed he still has the ability to win games. Stealing the puck at the blue line, Jagr skated the length of the ice, froze Tampa Bay goaltender Ben Bishop with a sleek move and deposited a second-period wrist shot into an open net to give the New Jersey Devils a 2-1 victory over the Lightning on Tuesday night. The 684th goal of Jagrs 20-year NHL career gave him 119 game-winners -- the most by any player since 1967-68 -- and moved him into second on the list ahead of Hall of Famer Phil Esposito, who retired in 1981. Gordie Howe has the lead with 121. "I remember him, I was watching (Esposito) in 1972," Jagr said. "I wasnt watching it live, I was just born in 72. I was watching the tapes and he was the man back then." During his career, Jagr also once was the man. Those days are over and now he just enjoys playing, noting he didnt even know he passed Esposito on the list. " You have to be pretty lucky to score at the right time," Jagr said. "Thats the way I think my body is built. I dont get much tired so I was scoring a lot of goals in the third period. Thats why I got a lot of game-winning goals." Adam Henrique also scored and Martin Brodeur made 16 saves as the Devils won consecutive games for the first time this season and ended Tampa Bays three-game winning streak. Steven Stamkos, who had three goals and four assists last week, scored a power-play goal for Tampa Bay, which had won 5 of 6 in posting the best record in the Eastern Conference. New Jersey, which lost its first seven games of the season, rallied late to beat Boston on Saturday for its second win. Brodeur, who preserved Tuesdays win with a great reaction stop in front on Valtteri Filppula with five minutes to play, joked about Jagr being 41, just as his is. "Hes been around a long time, longer than me actually, and thats pretty tough to say," Brodeur said. "This guy is amazing, the way he plays the game. I knew of him and played against him when I was younger so I cant say anything about his past, but what I have seen in his three months here, its pretty amazing to see him go. Not just the way he plays, but in the room and the way he conducts himself." Jagrs thirdd goal of the season came midway through the second period when he stripped Martin St. Kole Calhoun Jersey. nbsp;Louis at the Devils blue line and broke in alone for a 2-0 lead. Both New Jersey goals came on turnovers at the blue line. "On both goals we shot ourselves in the foot," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. "We gave a first-ballot Hall of Famer a clear-cut breakaway from their blue line. Theres a really good bet that might go in the net." The Devils dominated the opening 35 minutes, jumping to a 1-0 lead at 1:36 of the second period when Henrique tallied short-handed against Bishop, who made 20 saves in losing for the second time this season. Henrique knocked down a pass that defenceman Matthew Carle tried to send from left point to the corner and it set up an odd-man rush. Henrique carried the puck into the Tampa Bay zone and then played a give-and-go with Patrik Elias on cross-ice passes, beating Bishop before he could get back into position. Tampa Bay, which had four shots in both the first and third periods, finally woke up after a penalty in front of the net by Henrique at 14:15 of the second put it on a power play. Stamkos swatted in his own rebound while falling to the ice to cut the deficit to 2-1 at 15:23. It was his ninth goal of the season. "We sustained pressure and got back into the game and we could have had the lead," Cooper said. "Why cant we do that for more than six minutes a game. Thats the frustrating part." While Brodeur didnt face many shots in the opening two periods, he had to make several big saves. He made a point-blank save on Alex Killorn seconds before Henrique was called for his penalty and stopped Carle in close after Stamkos scored. Brodeur also stopped Tyler Johnson on a first-period breakaway and got a little help when a B.J. Crombeen shot caromed off the iron. NOTES: Elias appeared in his 1,100 NHL game. ... Lightning D Eric Brewer played in his 900th. ... Brodeur made his second straight start with Cory Schneider out with a lower back injury. ... Tampa Bay has scored power-play goals in four straight games. ... Henriques short-handed goal was the Devils second of the season. ... The loss also snapped the Lightnings three-game road winning streak, its longest since 2007-08.
