Mets top Nationals in series opener

The New York Mets used a three-run sixth inning to top the Washington Nationals, 4-2, on Tuesday night at Nationals Park.

Washington scored the first two runs of the game. Maikel Franco lined an RBI double to center in the fourth and Riley Adams homered to left in the fifth.

New York scored a pair of runs in the sixth to tie the game. Jeff McNeil put the Mets on the board with an RBI double to right and James McCann launched a sacrifice fly to right.


J.D. Davis put the Mets on top in the ninth with a sacrifice fly to right and that ended up being the difference.

Francisco Lindor and McNeil each had multi-hit games.

Carlos Carrasco got the start for New York and allowed two runs on seven hits over 6.2 innings while striking out five. Drew Smith, Joely Rodríguez, and Edwin Díaz combined for 2.1 scoreless innings.
