New York Mets lose Cespedes, hold off Washington Nationals

Washington Nationals

Mets' Jacob deGrom: Gets back on track in Friday victory

Lefty starter Tommy Milone allowed a run in the fifth inning before Rafael Montero surrendered two more in the sixth, and the Nationals tied the game at 5-all in the seventh by scoring two runs off right-hander Paul Sewald. He has a 5.65 ERA on the road in eight appearances (seven starts). "You can't walk guys in the big leagues like that, three guys in a row".

Zimmerman hurt his shoulder sliding into home plate in Thursday's win over the Houston Astros and sat out Friday as Washington fell to NY 4-2. Gonzalez has given up a single run in his past four outings where he has allowed 15 hits and seven walks over 27.2 innings. In all three games, the Nats starting pitchers combined to give up five runs.

With a runner on first and NY leading 3-2, Robles walked three straight hitters to force in Difo.

Brandon Nimmo came through big Sunday night. Of course, when these two teams get together, the conversation usually centers around Daniel Murphy, who is hitting.391 with 13 RBI's against NY this year. And after those five early runs allowed, he posted three straight zeroes to end his day.

Lind's 11th homer of the season provided a vital insurance run in the eighth. Andrew Stevenson doubled with two outs and then scored on the hit by Sanchez, which sent deGrom to showers.

That stands in contrast with most summers, when drivers see the biggest gasoline price increases of the year. Chattanooga- $2.05/g, up 1 cent per gallon from last week's $2.04/g.

Closer AJ Ramos lived dangerously but recorded a two-inning save. The game ended when Edwin Jackson thrown out at the plate by Asdrubal Cabrera's relay throw as Jackson attempted to score on Daniel Murphy's double. "Yeah, we're hoping his next one is a start with us", Collins said.

Gsellman is winless in his last five turns but pitched well enough to win on Monday, when he held the Arizona Diamondbacks to one run on five hits in 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision.

NY hasn't swept a doubleheader from the Washington/Montreal franchise since July 27, 1999 at Shea Stadium. A team spokeswoman said Sanchez checked out fine, was kept overnight to monitor his breathing, and discharged.

In what could be a potential World Series preview, the Washington Nationals (76-49) went into Minute Maid Park and took two of three from the Houston Astros this week. The rotation still has Jacob deGrom, but Seth Lugo and Steven Matz are now on the disabled list joining Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey.
