Mets Win Extra Inning Affair In DC, 6-5!

  • Nats got out in front early as Bryce Harper hit a two-run home run in the top of the first to give the Washington the early lead.
  • Mets continued their season long trend of not staying down for too long and in the top of the third Adrian Gonzalez crushed a 400 plus foot grand slam to give the Mets the lead.
  • After the Nats closed to within a run in the 4th, Asdrubal Cabrera hit a solo Home Run in the 5th to get the two run lead back again
  • Harvey worked through five innings, gave up 4 runs, 9 Hits while striking out two.
  • The Bullpen tried to hold onto the lead but couldn’t and the Nats tied it in the bottom of the 7th thanks to some poor defensive choices and bounces that prevented double plays that could have gotten the Mets out of a few jams.
  • Seth Lugo came on for the 9th in a tie game and gave up a leadoff walk to Bryce Harper. While trying to pick off Harper the ball got away. Harper went to second and stopped. He reached third with one out when Callaway loaded the bases intentionally and Lugo then K’d Taylor and Severino to end the 9th and we were on to extras!
  • Neither team could do anything until the top of the 12th when Cespedes, with a man on, got a bloop single to give the Mets the lead.
  • Jacob Rhame came in to close the door, with Familia having worked a lot in the first week, and did the job. Final score in 12, 6-5, Mets win.
