Mets 5 @ Nats 1.

Keibert Ruiz had a 1 out double in the 2nd, Lane Thomas reached on an error, but Maikel Franco ended the inning with a double play. Alcides Escobar lead off the 3rd with a single, Victor Robles sacrificed him to the 2nd, he went to 3rd on a Cesar Hernandez infield single, but Mets starter Tylor Megill struck out Juan Soto and forced an inning-ending groundout from Nelson Cruz. Mets had their first threat in the 4th as Pete Alonso singled with 2 out but he was thrown out at home on an Eduardo Escobar double. But Mets runs would come soon enough. Mets started the 5th with a walk sandwiched around 2 singles to load the bases before the James McCann recorded the Mets first RBI on the season with a bases loaded hit by pitch, and the Mets would add a second run as Mark Canha scored on a Starling Marte force out, but J.D. Davis hit into a double play to end the inning. Alonso walked with 1 out, Robbie Cano drew a 2 out walk 2 batters later, and Canha and Jeff McNeil had back to back RBI singles to make it 4-0. Nats would score their lone run in the bottom half on a Juan Soto home run and they had 2 out singles in the inning by Josh Bell & Ruiz but Thomas ended the inning on a force out. The final run came in the 7th on a Davis double and a Francisco Lindor single. Mets got 2 singles to start the 8th but 2 forceouts sandwiched around a flyout kept it a 5-1 game. Alonso was hit by a pitch with 2 outs in the 9th and Escobar walked but Travis Jankowski struck out. Patrick Corbin (0-1) allowed 2 runs on 5 hits with 2 walks and 4 strikeouts in 4 innings and Megill (1-0) had 6 strikeouts and 3 hits allowed in 5 innings.

Game 2 of the series is on Friday pitting 2 players traded for each other. Max Scherzer (15-4, 2.46 with the Nats and Dodgers) makes his return to DC after 6.5 stellar seasons while the prized pitching prospect in return the Nats got from the Dodgers in return for Scherzer & Trea Turner Josiah Gray (2-2, 5.48) gets the ball for the Nats with game time scheduled for 7:05.

Mets 7 @ Nats 3.

Josh Bell started the 2nd with a hit by pitch, went to 3rd on a Keibert Ruiz single, and scored on a Yadiel Hernandez sac fly and than Jeff McNeil tied the score in the top of the 3rd with a solo home run to RF. Francisco Lindor walked to start the 4th, 2 batters later Eduardo Escobar doubled to move Lindor to 3rd, both scored on a Robbie Cano single to put the Metropolitans up 3-1, Mark Canha followed with a walk, and following a pop up Tomas Nido singled to CF, but Cano was gunned down at home by Dee Strange-Gordon. Nelson Cruz started the bottom half of the frame with a single and Bell followed with a 2 run homer to knot the score at 3 all. Brandon Nimmo started the 5th with a triple, Starling Marte gave the Mets the lead for good with a double, Lindor was hit by a pitch which lead to the benches clearing (luckily he seemed to be OK, hopefully that's the case) but Sean Doolittle prevented further runs from coming across retiring the next 3 Mets that stepped up to the plate. Canha and McNeil had back-to-back singles to start the 6th, following a sac bunt and a strikeout Marte plated 2 runs with a single. 3 walks in the 8th loaded the bases for the Mets but Nido popped up with 2 outs to keep it at 6-3. Pete Alonso doubled to lead off the 9th, following a rain delay Eduardo Escobar drew a walk, 2 strikeouts than followed before McNeil plated the Mets 7th and final run with an RBI single. Max Scherzer (1-0) allowed 3 runs on 3 hits (1 home run) with 1 walk and 6 strikeouts in 6 innings, Drew Smith (1st hold) and Seth Lugo (1st hold) had 3 strikeouts and 2 hits combined in 2 innings. Josiah Gray (0-1) allowed 4 runs on 8 hits (1 home run) with 2 walks and 5 strikeouts in 4 innings.

Game 3 of the 4 game series is on Saturday. Chris Bassitt (12-4, 3.15 in '21) makes his Mets debut after coming over from Oakland while the Nats hand the ball to Joan Adon (0-0, 3.38 who had 9 strikeouts of the Red Sox in game 162 and would have won his debut had the bullpen held onto his lead). Game time scheduled for 7:05 PM.

X-Rays of jaw negative, plus Cano passed the concussion test.

Won 2 of 3 against the Braves. Nats won a blowout in game 1, 11-2; Braves won the blowout in game 2 16-4 with Travis d'Arnaud having a laugh after a hit by pitch from Dee Strange-Gordon. It was humurous, check it out if you haven't seen it already. Nats won the rubber match 3-1 with the Braves managing single hits in just the 1st, 6th (a home run) and the 9th. The Mets won 2 of 3 in Philly, and the Marlins got swept in a 2 game series against the Angels in other action from the division this week. Mets are leading the pack at 5-2, Phillies are 3-3 and 1.5 back, Nats and Braves are tied at 3-4 2 games back, and the 1-4 Marlins are 3 games behind the Mets. 4 game weekend series in Pittsburgh starts on Thursday; Joan Adon, Erick Fedde, Josh Rogers and patrick Corbin are the scheduled Nats starters in order while the Pirates are scheduled to throw out JT Brubaker, Mitch Keller, Bryse Wilson, and Jose Quintana. Thursday, Friday & Saturday game times are 6:35 while the Easter Sunday game goes at 1:35.

They've lost 8 of of their last 10 getting outscored by 34 in that 10 game stretch. Strasburg made one start, throwing batting practice, before he ended up back on the IL. The Reds who started the year like 2-20 somehow have a better record then they do as only the A's who basically sold their entire MLB team in the off season, and the Royals are the only 2 teams that have worse records than the Nats do. In the division it's not much better: 5-21 against divisional teams; 2-4 against the Braves, 1-8 against the Marlins, 2-8 against the Mets and have just played the first game against the Phillies but it was a 10-1 thrashing, so unfortunately we probably get 18 more of those scores the next 4 months. At least the Braves, Mets, Marlins, and for today at least the Phillies are doing what teams like that should be doing: beating up on your bad divisional opponents! Not much going on this summer at 1500 S Capital Ave, and it's too bad of all the sports baseball has the worst odds on nailing a #1 pick (unless it's Harper, Strasburg, Griffey, or Machado but I don't think there's any of those that year) because that's the only thing worth watching in DC the rest of the year: race for the #1 pick! I will be down there for a game or 2 in August against the Pads, so hopefully Tatis is back by then, and I'm going the end of the year down to Miami, so hopefully the Marlins are still at least in a Wildcard mix so I can see Pablo Lopez & Sandy Alcantara hopefully throw for the Fish that weekend.

That's now 11 straight games lost to NL East opponents. Exciting games on Friday though; they lost both games, but in the first game they at least got the tying run to the plate in the 9th inning, then in game 2 they went ahead early, fell behind like usual, came back to take the lead with 2 Bell homers, went into the 8th up 5-3, should have never pitched to Harper but Harper should have walked regardless, he had a game-tying double; Phillies back up Matt Vieling hits 2 home runs, the second in the 9th to put the Phils back up on top, Didi Gregorius forces extra innings on a throwing error with Nelson Cruz batting when he probably could have just rolled the ball to first and gotten the out, but too bad the game ended on a controversial obstruction/interference call. Ryan Zimmerman retirement jersey ceremony id tomorrow, so that coupled with the Phillies, that's a game they had better win!

Never realized what a great teammate and guy Scherzer is. His 2nd minor league tuneup, where pro buys post game spread, it was lobster, filet mignon, etc. $7k plus air pods for all.

Class. Not just pitches like a Hall of Famer. He acts like a Hall of Famer. Which will be using a National uniform, properly, no matter what occurs in NY.
