Final Score: Nationals 5, Mets 2-Speed kills

Stolen bases doomed the Mets against the Nationals. After a disheartening loss to open the series, the Mets followed that up with a painful 5-2 defeat. Zack Wheeler got the start and was not bad but a few well placed hits by Wilmer Difo and Pedro Severino put the Nationals ahead in the fourth. Wheeler had a good day at the plate and helped get a rally started an inning later. He scored on Asdrubal Cabrera’s sacrifice fly after Amed Rosario moved him to third with a double. A bad throw allowed Rosario to take third and he came home when Yoenis Cespedes grounded out. Wheeler would depart...

Nationals win 2nd straight, 5-2 over Mets; Gio Gonzalez now 11-1 in Citi Field...

Washington’s Nationals improved to 51-19 in Citi Field since 2011, and Gio Gonzalez improved to (11-1) in 16 career starts in the New York Mets’ home with a 5-2 win. Davey Martinez was not happy when a reporter mentioned Gio Gonzalez’s (10-1) record in 15 career starts in Citi Field before tonight’s game with the New York Mets. “Why would you say that right now?” Martinez asked, feigning frustration. Try as the report did, the jinx was not executed. Gonzalez tossed 5 1⁄3 innings, over which he gave up eight hits, two walks, and two runs, both earned, and he left the game in...

Washington’s Nationals try to keep the momentum going in the second game of three with the New York Mets in Citi Field. Washington Nationals’ skipper Davey Martinez didn’t mince his words when he talked with reporters after the Nats’ come-from-behind 8-6 win over the New York Mets in Citi Field in last night’s series opener. The win, which was the Nationals’ first in five games with the NL East-leading Mets this season, was a big one, even for April. “That was big,” Martinez said. “Super big. I’m not going to sit here and lie. I said the boys are fired up. Testament to...

Taking over the fifth spot in the Nationals’ rotation, veteran right-hander Jeremy Hellickson impressed in his first start since signing on in Washington. Washington Nationals’ GM Mike Rizzo insisted all winter that he was happy with the starting depth in the organization, and he maintained that stance even after the Nats’ added Jeremy Hellickson to the mix in mid-March. “He can elevate his fastball. He throws cutters. He keeps hitters off-balance throughout the game. He’s really good at that.” - Davey Martinez on Jeremy Hellickson “We like the rotation we have,” Rizzo told...

Jacob deGrom goes unrewarded for finally giving Mets length

Rarely, has there been a more certain bet. Jacob deGrom had silenced the Nationals, except for a first inning, broken-bat homer by Bryce Harper. DeGrom had carved up the hitters for 12 strikeouts, then ran into trouble in the eighth, yielding singles around his 12th and final strikeout. So he exited at 103 pitches. No...

Washington Nationals’ skipper Davey Martinez talked before and after tonight’s game about how big a series this week’s three-game set with the New York Mets was, even early in the season. New York’s 12-2 record before Monday night was the best start through 14 game in franchise history, and their .857 winning percentage going into this week’s three-game series with the Washington Nationals was the National League’s best and second-best in the majors behind only the Boston’s Red Sox (13-2, .867). “Don’t try to be a hero, just drive in a run, that’s what we’re asking...
