The New York Mets lost to the Washington Nationals on Monday afternoon in a split squad game.  The game took place at First Data Field in Port St. Lucie, Florida and the final score was 6-0.  Seth Lugo started for the Mets and he didn’t pitch very well.  The Mets offense only managed three hits. 

Lugo lost his first game of the spring pitching 4 1/3 innings and giving up eight hits and four runs with no walks and three strikeouts.  Josh Edgin pitched to two batters and struck one out, Fernando Salas pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout and Paul Sewald pitched two innings giving up a hit and two runs with a walk and four strikeouts.  David Roseboom pitched a perfect inning striking out the side. 

Jose Reyes had a hit, Neil Walker drew a walk and Lucas Duda drew a walk.  Travis d’Arnaud had a hit, Travis Taijeron had a hit and drew two walks and the Mets were 0-3 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base. 

In the third Trea Turner hit a solo homerun to give the Mets a 1-0 lead.  In the fourth Bryce Harper hit a solo homerun to extend the lead to 2-0.  IN the fourth Ryan Zimmerman hit an RBI double to push the lead to 3-0.  Turner hit his second homerun of the game in the fifth to make it a 4-0 game and in the eighth Harper hit his second homer of the game a two-run shot to make it a 6-0 game.  6-0 would be the final score.
