The New York Mets (42-43) managed just one hit in a 1-0 loss to the Washington Nationals (41-46) on Thursday afternoon in a game that lasted just one hour and 58 minutes. 

With the game scoreless in the bottom of the eighth inning, Jesse Winker came off the bench and crushed a pinch-hit solo home run off Adrian Houser, and the Mets went down quietly in the ninth to earn a series split with the Nationals. 

Jeff McNeil had the only hit, a single in the third. In addition to that, the Mets had just one walk. 

Jose Quintana tossed seven scoreless while allowing four hits, three walks, and striking out one. 

Box Score

The Mets will head to Pittsburgh to begin a four-game series with the Pirates on Friday at 6:40 p.m.
