Mets Vs. Nationals Final Score: Washington Hangs On To Win 5-3

The Washington Nationals jumped out on the New York Mets early, picking up three runs in the bottom of the first inning on an Adam LaRoche three-run home run. The Mets began to whittle away the lead however, picking up runs in the top of the third and fourth innings on Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Lucas Duda RBI.

The Nats added some insurance later in the game however on a Michael Morse single and an Adam LaRoche sacrifice fly. Edwin Jackson had a solid outing for the Nats, eating up seven innings and striking out six batters, but the Mets late rally couldn't get past the Nats bullpen as Washington hangs on to win 5-3.
