Francisco Lindor got it started early for the Mets in the first inning, blasting a two-run shot to left-centerfield. The home run plated across Jonathan Villar and was his seventh of the campaign.
In the third, Lindor would come through with a sharply hit RBI single. The line drive single would count as his third RBI of the day, giving the Mets the 3-0 advantage.
After David Peterson picked up his first Major League hit in the fifth, Francisco Lindor would soon follow with another two-run home run, his eighth of the year.
David Peterson wouldn’t last long, however it wasn’t a bad outing. The Denver, Colorado native ended up tossing 4.2 innings before being replaced by left-hander Aaron Loup. While Peterson only gave up two hits, he did however walk three batters, hastening his exit.
Although he didn’t pick up the win, Peterson did lower his ERA to 5.31 after his outing against the Nationals.
The would drop the second game, 6-2, as Robert Gsellman opened the game for the Mets. The right-hander pitched two innings while giving up a run. The run came in a Kyle Schwarber solo home run in the first inning.
While Sean Reid-Foley has been spot on, so far, he did have a blunder on Saturday. Reid-Foley threw 1.2 innings and gave up five runs on the afternoon, including a second home run to Kyle Schwarber.
While the Mets were able to split the doubleheader, they’ll work hard to split the four-game series on Sunday afternoon. Taijuan Walker will be in search of his seventh victory of the year as Nationals starter Patrick Corbin tries to get back on track.
