The Mets’ opening collection in DC wasn’t quick on theatrics. Benches clearing “brawl,” a lights-out delay, rain delay, grand slam, Max Scherzer’s return to DC in his Mets debut, Sunday drama and a lot extra. All in all, it was a hit for the boys in orange and blue, taking three of 4 from the Nationals earlier than they head to Philadelphia to tackle the Phillies.

Amazin’ However True’ Podcast with Jake & Figgie:
- SUNDAY SCARIES: Mets fail to get the four-game sweep in opposition to the Nationals on Sunday. Pete Alonso’s smooth toss house and offline throw to second base had been the massive distinction. That isn’t on Trevor Williams. Buck Showalter needed to get everybody in and he achieved that over the weekend.
- ROTATION DAZZLES: Tylor Megill, Max Scherzer, Chris Bassitt and Carlos Carrasco all pitched very properly. Scherzer made no excuses after a 15-minute delay as a result of the lights went out. Showalter has life on this crew as everybody defended Francisco Lindor after the fourth HBP in two video games.
- NATIONALS PARK DISASTER: Lights went out, no straws, steak sandwiches with out bread, no rubbish in males’s lavatory, kiosks to pay for meals, metro closing at 11, followers had been missing. It was a wrestle in DC opening weekend.
