Rafael Montero and the Mets were shellacked by the Nationals this evening. Pitching in Jacob deGrom’s vacated slot in the starting rotation, Montero gave up five runs on three home runs in five-plus innings of work. Carlos Torres gave up two more on a home run shortly after replacing Montero in the top of the sixth.
At the plate, the Mets were once again inept against Doug Fister. They didn’t score against him in seven innings, and they scratched out just one run against the Washington bullpen despite loading the bases with nobody out in the eighth. That was it for the Mets' scoring in the game.
