Final Score: Mets 6, Nationals 1—That'll do

New, 212 comments

The Mets beat the Nationals by a fairly wide margin this evening.

Patrick Smith

Zack Wheeler might not have been at his best against the Nationals this evening, but he wound up allowing just one run in six-and-two-thirds innings, and the Mets won the game 6-1. The Mets scored once in the first inning on a David Wright single and once in the second on a bloop single by Wheeler.

From there, neither team scored until the seventh, though Wheeler flirted with trouble on a few occasions. The Mets tacked on three runs in the seventh to widen their lead, the first two of which scored on a Daniel Murphy single. Lucas Duda blooped a single to plate the Mets’ fifth run of the evening later in the inning.

Wheeler notched a couple of outs in the bottom of that inning on a double play, and the Mets’ bullpen—Josh Edgin, Jeurys Familia, and Dana Eveland—kept the Nationals scoreless for the rest of the game.
