New York Mets lose Cespedes, hold off Washington Nationals

New York Mets lose Cespedes, hold off Washington Nationals”

The New York Mets and the Washington Nationals can spend the rest of the weekend comparing their respective injury lists, both of which continue to grow. But, the focus around the Mets is their young position players (shortstop Amed Rosario and first base Dominic Smith).

The Nationals broke up the shutout bid as Adrian Sanchez had an RBI single in the eighth to make it 3-1. He has a 5.65 ERA on the road in eight appearances (seven starts).

"The only pitch I thought I missed and I want back is the one to Reyes", Doolittle said. He gave up one run on four hits in six innings with four walks.

In his first appearance since May 10 after surgery to fix a blood clot in his right arm, Familia allowed three runs on four hits in a rough eighth inning.

Chasen Bradford then came in and walked in another run to give the Nationals a lead. Mets manager Terry Collins, who wanted to ease Familia back in a non-save situation, called the right-hander "rusty". "We saw that in the first game today. You can't walk guys in the big leagues like that, three guys in a row". He struck out five and did not walk a batter.

Matt Harvey allowed five runs three earned on five hits in 4.2 innings in what may be his final rehab start with the Brooklyn Cyclones

Lind's 11th homer of the season provided a vital insurance run in the eighth. Baker expects Zimmerman to play one game during Sunday's doubleheader.

After blowing a five-run lead in the first game, the Mets regained it and cut down the potential tying run at the plate for the final out. Andrew Stevenson doubled with two outs and then scored on the hit by Sanchez, which sent deGrom to showers. When rookie right fielder Travis Taijeron booted the ball, Jackson was waved around third. The Mets had dropped seven of ten before surprising the Nationals 4-2 in the series opener Friday.

Cabrera's three-run homer in the first and Wilmer Flores' two-run shot in the third (his career-high 17th) staked NY to an early 5-0 lead.

Closer AJ Ramos lived dangerously but recorded a two-inning save. He hits eighth against starter Jacob deGrom. He struck out two and walked one. He met with the NY training staff on the field before being removed.

But that forced the Mets into their bullpen - again. The two teams split the first two games of the series, while the Sunday afternoon game is still pending.
