The New York Mets had a chance to win their first series in almost a month, but they laid an egg and got blown out by the Washington Nationals 10-3 on Monday afternoon, splitting the four-game series.
The game was tied at one after two innings, but David Peterson got lit up on the mound again, and the offense struggled to generate offense against Washington’s pitching staff.
Peterson allowed six runs on nine hits over five innings. Tommy Hunter gave up three runs in relief over the final three innings.
Brandon Nimmo plated the first run with an RBI single, while Tommy Pham added a sacrifice fly, and Jeff McNeil chipped in a run-scoring groundout.
The Mets will begin a six-game homestand starting Tuesday with three against the Tampa Bay Rays. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
