The only run of the game was the final run of the game as the Nationals walk off the Mets.

A quick look at the box score of tonight’s game gives you a pretty good idea of what went down between the first and last pitches of the Nationals’ 1-0 win over the Mets, but such cursory glances would rob your eyes of the best and longest performance of Joey Lucchesi’s Mets career.

While he didn’t get the win, Joey Lucchesi pitched into the sixth inning and to the same lineup for the third time in a game for the first time since donning the orange and blue, though he was pulled after only recording one out in the inning. But still, five and a third innings to go along with only four hits allowed, zero runs scored, and five strikeouts isn’t too bad for the Caporegime of Churves.

Now that I’ve avoided touching on the Mets’ hitting for as long as possible, I can tell you that the team racked up two singles in nine innings and scored zero runs before the Nationals walked off in the ninth on Yan Gomes’ single against Edwin Diaz. Are you happy now?
