PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Curtis Granderson produced a tiebreaking two-run homer in the seventh inning against Drew Storen and the Mets beat the Washington Nationals, 3-1, Sunday in a split-squad game at Tradition Field.

Jeurys Familia and Bobby Parnell each tossed scoreless innings.

The Mets dropped their other game, 4-1, to the Atlanta Braves at ESPN Wide World of Sports.

In that game, Carlos Torres allowed two runs on six hits while striking out four in four innings. Minor leaguers Joel Carreño and Cody Satterwhite gave up single runs. The Mets’ lone run came in the fourth against Freddy Garcia, when Juan Lagares walked and eventually scored on a groundout.

What’s next: Daisuke Matsuzaka tries to sew up the fifth-starter’s role when he faces the St. Louis Cardinals at 1:10 p.m. Monday at Tradition Field (SNY). Matsuzaka opposes right-hander Shelby Miller.
