The New York Mets and Washington Nationals play to a tie

The New York Mets and Washington Nationals played to a tie on Sunday afternoon.  The game took place at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie, Florida and the final score was 4-4.  I believe this was the third straight tie game for the Mets which is pretty funny.  Steven Matz started and pitched ok despite being wild.  David Wright had a couple of hits and RBI, Neil Walker had a couple of hits and Michael Conforto had a couple of RBI. 

Matz pitched 5 2/3 innings giving up a hit and a run with four walks and five strikeouts.  Antonio Bastardo pitched to one batter and retired him, Logan Verrett pitched an inning giving up two hits and a run and Jim Henderson pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up two hits and two runs with one of them being earned.  Jerry Blevins pitched 2/3 of an inning walking a batter and Jeurys Familia pitched an inning giving up a hit and he struck out one. 

Curtis Granderson had a hit, Wright had two hits and two RBI and Eric Campbell had a hit.  Yoenis Cespedes drew a walk, Walker had two hits and Conforto had a hit and two RBI.  Amed Rosario had two hits, Johnny Monell had a hit and Matz had a hit.  Travis d'Arnaud drew a walk, Granderson and Monell each hit a double and Walker hit a triple.  Wright and Conforto each hit a homerun and the Mets were 2-5 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.  Blevins committed an error, Monell had a passed ball and Granderson had an outfield assist. 

In the first Wright hit a solo homerun to give the Mets a 1-0 lead.  In the second Conforto hit a two run homerun to extend their lead to 3-0.  In the fourth Clint Robinson hit a solo homerun to cut the lead to 3-1.  In the fifth Wright hit an RBI single and it was 4-1 Mets.  Matt den Dekker hit an RBI single in the seventh to cut the lead to 4-2.  In the eighth Chris Heisey hit an RBI groundout to make it 4-3 and a throwing error led to another run to tie the game at four which would be the final score. 

The Mets spring record is now 7-13 with I think five tie games.  They will play the St. Louis Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida on Monday afternoon.
