It's "den Dekker," Nationals announcers. - Chris McShane
The Mets and Nationals played to a tie on Thursday evening.
There's nothing more exciting than a spring training tie. The Mets visited the Nationals this evening and scored a run in the top of the first. The Nationals scored one run in each of the second and third innings, and the Mets answered with one in the top of the fourth. Not to be outdone, Washington plated a sole run in the bottom of the fourth.
Keeping with the theme of the night, each team scored one run in the sixth before the Mets knotted the game up with — wait for it — a one-run seventh inning. So ended the scoring, and the game was officially a tie after ten innings of play.
A few items of note from the game:
- Rafael Montero gave up one run in two innings and didn't strike out or walk anyone.
- Josh Edgin struck out two and didn't walk any in two scoreless innings.
- Jordany Valdespin, Collin Cowgill, and Travis d'Arnaud had two hits a piece.
Nice job by MetsFan4Decades; her effort in the game thread embiggens us all.
