Final Score: Nationals 9, Mets 0 — Meaningless blowout in September

New, 34 comments

Mets pitchers gave up five home runs and the Mets' offense managed one hit. Must End The Season.

Jim McIsaac

Mets starting pitcher Carlos Torres got rocked and the Mets' offense managed just three baserunners in a meaningless September blowout loss. Torres allowed four home runs in four brutal innings of work, departing with the Nationals ahead 6-0. Zach Lutz broke up Nats starter Gio Gonzalez's no-hit bid in the seventh inning with a leadoff single. Gonzalez completed the shutout, striking out eight and walking two.

Denard Span and Ryan Zimmerman hit back-to-back home runs to start the game, while Jayson Werth hit a three-run home run in the third inning and Tyler Moore added a solo shot in the fourth inning. Greg Burke gave up a three-run bomb to Wilson Ramos in the fifth inning, which put the Nats up 9-0.

In conclusion, here are some Mets players cuddling with puppies:
