The nationals got 9 hits and scored 4 times off of him. Torres’ one scoreless inning earned him the win. Jenrry Mejia earned his 28th save of the year.

The Mets scattered 15 hits throughout the game with Wilmer Flores, Lucas Duda, Curtis Granderson and Kirk Nieuwenhuis all had multiple hits with Matt den Dekker landing the finishing blow. His 8th inning RBI single put the Mets ahead for good. He scored later that inning to extend the lead.

Juan Centeno, who started for the injured Travis d’Arnaud, was hitless in the game.

1988. I was born in 1988 and as Mets fans we all know what that means. I lived through 1969 by hearing old stories from Tom Seaver and relived 1986 over and over in my head, pretending I was there as the final out was recorded. Being a Mets fan isn't easy and it isn't always fun but all of the bad will make the good so much sweeter. Baseball games aren't sprints and neither is building a winning team. I'm here for the long haul. Let's Go Mets!
