For once, Washington Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy looked human against his former team, the New York Mets.

For the first time in the history of the universe, Washington Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy has looked like the sloppy infielder we know him to be against the New York Mets.

That’s right. The guy who’s now riding a 28-game hitting streak against his former club finally gave one back to the Flushing faithful.

In the fourth inning of Sunday’s Mets 5-1 victory — salvaging the three-game set against the Nats — Murphy dropped a Lucas Duda popup that sparked a two-run Mets inning, via Zach Braziller of the New York Post.

“He chewed me up and spit me out,” Murphy said after the Mets prevented a Nationals sweep with a 5-1 victory at Citi Field.

“It went up and I felt like I had a bead on it. Then it went straight into the sun,” Murphy said. “I tried to work my way around it. By the time I did, I think the wind had shifted it a little as well, and I couldn’t make a play on it.”

Now that’s the Murph we know and love.

The Mets will now turn around quickly and take on Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers on the west coast on Monday night.
