The New York Mets offense was silenced by the Washington Nationals yet again as they fell, 7-1, on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field. With the loss, New York dropped two of three in the series and had their lead in the National League East shrink to one.

Jeff McNeil plated the Mets’ only run of the contest with a sacrifice fly in the second inning. He also had two of the team’s six hits.

Carlos Carrasco made his return from the injured list, and it did not go well. The right-hander allowed five runs (one earned) on six hits over 2 2/3 innings while walking two and striking out two. Trevor Williams relieved Williams and surrendered a pair of runs over 4 1/3 innings. Tommy Hunter recorded the final six outs.

The Mets will head to Pittsburgh to begin a three-game series with the Pirates on Monday at 12:35 p.m. Taijuwan Walker will get the ball for the opener.
