The Mets lost to the Nationals 1-0 today. Neither team scored until Wilson Ramos hit a long solo home run in the bottom of the seventh inning. That, obviously, wound up being the only run scored in the game.
Before the home run, Robert Gsellman threw five-and-two-thirds scoreless innings, and Josh Smoker got the third out in the sixth. But Fernando Salas suffered his first blemish since joining the Mets when he served up the aforementioned home run to Ramos. And the Mets weren’t able to score—despite having loaded the bases with one out in the top of the first.
But Jay Bruce struck out and T.J. Rivera flew out to end that threat, which was really the only one the Mets had in the game. It was a tough loss, but the Cardinals and Giants both lost, too, and they begin a four-game series against each other starting tomorrow.
Full recap to follow.
