Mets Lose 9-7 to Nationals in 10

David Wright finished 3-5 with one home run but the Mets dropped the game to Washington, 9-7 in 10 innings. The Mets struck out 18 times in the loss.

With the score at 4-4 in the bottom of the eighth and the Mets batting, Juan Lagares launched a solo shot off reliever Tyler Clippard. Again tied 5-5 in the top of the 10th, the Nationals moved in front to stay when Jayson Werth came in to score after a sacrifice fly. Soon after, Anthony Rendon took one off reliever John Lannan out of the park, driving in Adam LaRoche and Jose Lobaton to make it 9-5.

Dillon Gee (0-0) put in 6 2/3 innings of work for a no-decision while allowing four runs on four hits with five strikeouts and two walks. Jeurys Familia (0-1) picked up his first loss of the season after pitching 2/3 of an inning surrendering two runs on two hits while fanning one and walking no one. Aaron Barrett (1-0) picked up the victory, pitching one inning and giving up no runs on no hits with two strikeouts and no walks. Wright was solid at the plate for the Mets, going 3 for 5 with a home run, two runs, and two RBIs. Lagares also had a good game, going 2 for 4 with a home run, three runs, an RBI, and a walk. Rendon finished 2 for 5 with a double, a home run, a run, and four RBIs in the win.

The Mets will go up against the Nationals again Wednesday at Citi Field at 7:10 PM EDT.
