Spoiler Alert: This game was really, really ugly. Let’s get right to it…

The Nationals got off to a quick start off of Carlos Torres when Denard Span and Ryan Zimmerman hit back-to-back jacks to lead off the game. Torres would settle down, but just for a while.

After a quiet second, the Nats struck again in the third when Jayson Werth took the first pitch he saw to left center for a three run home run. It was Werth’s 22nd of year. The Nats went up 5-0, but that was just the beginning.

The fatal blow to Torres was a Tyler Moore solo bomb in the fourth. Torres final line was this: HORRIBLE.

Greg Burke relieved Torres, but fared about the same. Wilson Ramos smacked a dinger to left center, bringing in two other Nats and for the last time, expanding their lead to 9.

While this was a brutal game to watch, at least it was fun coming up with all these different names to call home runs.

Meanwhile, Gio Gonzalez tossed an absolute gem, allowing only three Met baserunners. Zach Lutz was the lone hero, leading off the seventh with a single ando, while this was a brutal game to watch, it was fun coming up with all these different names to call home runs.

The series continues tomorrow at 7:10, when Jordan Zimmermann and Dillon Gee will face off for game two of this four game series.
