MLB: Francisco Lindor’s 3-run single rallies Mets past Nats

Francisco Lindor rapped a bases-clearing single with two outs in the sixth inning as the New York Mets rallied for a 3-2 victory against the host Washington Nationals on Friday night.

Lindor ended up on second base when the play ended, moving up on the throw home. It was a major output for the Mets, who hadn’t scored three runs in six of their previous eight games.

Lindor’s hit produced as many runs batted in as he had compiled in his last eight games.

Brandon Nimmo, Jeff McNeil and Starling Marte all had two hits for New York, which won for just the fourth time in its last 13 games.

Five Mets pitchers combined on a four-hitter.

Starter Tylor Megill (4-2) went five innings, followed by Jeff Brigham and Adam Ottavino with a scoreless inning apiece and David Robertson with 1 2/3 shutout innings. Drew Smith notched the final out for his first save of the season.

In the ninth, Washington’s Jeimer Candelario drew a leadoff walk and reached second on a two-out wild pitch. Robertson walked Jacob Alu, and Smith entered the game to strike out Lane Thomas swinging.

The Mets wasted numerous early chances. They loaded the bases with two outs in the first inning. Through three innings, they stranded seven runners.

But they did enough to boost the pitch count of Nationals starter MacKenzie Gore. He exited after four shutout innings, throwing 96 pitches.

Andres Machado was charged with two runs and Carl Edwards Jr. (1-2) was tagged with the Mets’ third run.

The Nationals, who won three of their previous four games, scored in the first inning on Joey Meneses’ single. They pushed the lead to 2-0 in the fourth on a Lindor error.

Megill was charged with two runs (one earned). He struggled with control by issuing four walks to go with four hits allowed.

Alex Call had two hits for the Nationals.
