Met killer ne plus ultra Adam La Roche gave the Nats the early lead with a two-run opposite field shot off of Dillon Gee in the top of the first, and Bryce Harper followed suit with his own two-run shot in the fourth. That would be the sum total of the Nationals' runs, and all the runs they'd need. The Mets scratched out a run against Stephen Strasburg in the fourth, with a great deal of help from some shoddy fielding from the opposition, but that was all they could manage against the young'un and the formidable Nats bullpen.
Full recap to come.
