3 comments
Wednesday night in Washington, Jordan Zimmerman out-dueled Jacob DeGrom as the Nationals beat the Mets 2-1.  DeGrom made one mistake. That came in the bottom of the first inning. Yunel Escobar singled. Then a batter later Ryan Zimmerman took a DeGrom offering over the left field wall to make it 2-0.  In the top of the 2nd the Mets answered right back.  Following back to back singles by Daniel Murphy and Juan Lagares, Travis d’Arnaud singled home Murphy and it was 2-1.  After that both Zimmerman and DeGrom went unblemished in the run department, but the Met offense failed to pull them through.  DeGrom went 6 allowing 6 hits the 2 runs (both earned) walking 2 and striking out 6. He’s the tough luck loser falling to 0-1. Zimmerman went 6 as well, allowing 5 hits, a run (earned) and striking out 4 notching the win, he’s now 1-0.  Rafael Montero made his 2015 debut with a pair of scoreless innings in relief.  Drew Storen notches his first save on the year for Washington. Thursday afternoon at 1:05 est the Mets conclude their first series of the year. Matt Harvey makes his return to the mound for the Mets. Fellow fireballer Stephen Strasburg goes for the Nats.

I can't believe I'm already talking about a 'game of inches'...

a bad bunt... a single pitch to Zimmerman... and a framed ball four to Granderson... any one of these would have changed the makeup and outlook of the game.

No more pitcher injuries.

You can't average 5 hits a game and win two in a row against a team like this

Nice appearance by Montero

Even the best of the best lose 60 games. This team will shake it off and move on.
