The New York Mets closed out the 2022 regular season on Wednesday night at Citi Field with a 9-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. New York finished with 101 wins, second-most in franchise history behind only the 1986 team.

Mark Canha and James McCann each smacked a three-run home run to lead the offense. Francisco Lindor collected three RBIs with a bases-clearing double. Jeff McNeil secured the National League batting title after finishing with a .326 average.

Trevor Williams surrendered a pair of runs over six innings. Mychal Givens tossed a scoreless frame in his first game off the injured list.

The Mets will host the San Diego Padres in the best-of-three National League Wild Card series. Max Scherzer will get the ball for Game 1 on Friday at 8:37 p.m.
