Final score: Nationals 8, Mets 1—Monter-oh no, not again

Rafael Montero was bad, and the Mets lost.

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Rafael Montero’s start against the Nationals went so poorly that it’s hard to imagine he’ll make another one this year, and the Mets lost 8-1 in their series opener in Washington, D.C. In one-and-two-thirds innings, Montero allowed six runs, issued four walks, and allowed two home runs—one of which was hit by opposing pitcher Mat Latos.

The Mets’ lone run of the game scored in the top of the first when Yoenis Cespedes hit a sacrifice fly. And after Montero finally departed in the second inning, Gabriel Ynoa allowed two runs on three hits in two innings of work. The rest of the Mets’ bullpen shut the Nationals down the rest of the way, though it didn’t really matter, with Jim Henderson, Sean Gilmartin, Logan Verrett, and Josh Edgin each making a scoreless appearance.
