Meet the Mets
The Mets grabbed their fourth consecutive win on Saturday by beating the Nationals Washington. In the sixth inning, Bryce Harper hit his fifth home run of the season off of Hansel Robles to give the Nats a 2-1 lead. But Todd Frazier and Asdrubal Cabrera rallied in the seventh inning and grabbed an RBI apiece to make the score 3-2 Mets. On the hill, starting pitcher Steven Matz struck out eight hitters in five scoreless innings. In the eighth inning, Jeurys Familia was called from the bullpen and recorded a five-out save to hold down the fort.
