Mets lose the opener of the series to the Nationals 3-2, as the Nationals hit back to back home runs in the 3rd inning, and then added an insurance run late in the game. A Pagan hit a HR in the 9th to make it 3-2, but the Mets fell short. Reyes and Manuel were both ejected after Reyes was called out looking at a 3-2 slider, which appeared to be a strike.
After the game, the Mets finally realized that Frankie C. from Smithtown was not helping the team, and they called up Chris "The Animal" Carter. Finally a smart decision by the Mets.
They still have a waste of a roster spot with Gary Matthews Jr., who struck out in a huge spot in the 7th inning with runners on 1st and 3rd and 1 out. Why wasn't Tatis pinch hitting there??
