◼️ In a straight duel in the Eastern Division of the National League, the New York team suffered the biggest defeat of its history in the National Park in Washington.
The Washington Nationals offense was a bulldozer on Tuesday and gave the New York Mets the biggest loss of their history. After the first five innings, the score went up to 19-0, and in the end, it was 25-4 for the delirium of the fans at Nationals Park.
The second baseman of the capital, Daniel Murphy, who played for the Mets no less than 7 seasons (between 2008 and 2015), scored two home runs that were worth three runs, in addition to producing six runs.
The team of Dave Martinez had Tanner Roark as a starter and made the difference: in seven innings allowed a single run, with seven strikeouts and four hits. In addition, in five innings as a batter, he had two hits and three RBIs.
In this way, Washington was left with a direct duel from the Eastern Division of the National League and reached a record of 53-53, which is still insufficient in the race for the Playoffs: the Phillies are 59-48 and the Braves 57 -47. The Mets, on the other hand, are very far away: 44-60.
