Mets 3, Na­tion­als 1

HIGH­EST WIN EX­PECTANCY 73 per­cent

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Syn­op­sis: In some ways, open­ing day was a preview of what was to come: The Na­tion­als blew a lead against the Mets, with pitch­ing and field­ing mis­cues — par­tic­u­larly Ian Desmond’s — as chief rea­sons. Max Scherzer, in his first Na­tion­als start, du­eled Bar­tolo Colon for five in­nings. But with two outs in the sixth, Desmond’s er­ror on a a popup in short right field led to two un­earned runs. In the sev­enth, Desmond was charged with a throw­ing er­ror on what would have been the in­ning’s sec­ond out. The next bat­ter, Travis d’Ar­naud, smacked an RBI triple off Scherzer.
