Mets beat Nationals to keep slim playoff hopes alive

Heading into this season, there were no guarantees that David Peterson would throw a single pitch for the Mets. The team spent its winter investing in starting pitching depth and felt good about its rotation. Peterson, the team’s top upper-Minors pitching prospect, was there in case something went wrong.

When things did go wrong, Peterson responded. He capped his rookie season with seven strong innings on Thursday in a 3-2 win over the Nationals that kept the Mets’ microscopic playoff hopes alive for at least another day.

Peterson finished his rookie year 6-2 with a 3.44 ERA.

The only run Peterson gave up came in the fourth, when he walked the leadoff batter and gave up an RBI single.

The Mets took the lead for good a half-inning later on Robinson Chirinos’ two-run homer.
