The New York Mets rolled past the Washington Nationals, 13-5, on Monday night at Citi Field.
New York pounded out 13 runs on 16 hits, with five of their nine hitters reaching base safely at least three times. Among the highlights was Starling Marte’s two-run homer to cap a four-run rally off Erick Fedde in the second. Francisco Lindor’s three hits in the first three innings, and Nick Plummer’s night ending a triple shy of the cycle. Marte and Plummer each had four-RBI nights.
David Peterson made the start for the Mets and allowed four runs over 4.2 innings. Colin Holderman allowed a run in relief but picked up the win, while Chasen Shreve and Stephen Nogosek had scoreless outings.
The Mets will go for the series win on Tuesday night. The first pitch is slated for 7:10 p.m.
