The Nationals hit seven hits and walked three times with Adam Eaton and Juan Soto, who each hit two hits.
Washington hands the start of Sunday at the Mets to rookie Jefry Rodriguez. Rodriguez comes from a 7-5 defeat against Miami with four points scoring (two earned) over five frames.
The New York Mets drove Saturday their pitching to a victory against the rival Nationals. New York's starter Zack Wheeler threw seven scoreless innings and got the win with three relievers who went to zero.
The Mets did their damage on eight hits with Amed Rosario and Todd Frazier hit solo-homers while Michael Conforto singled in Rosario.
The Mets tipped Steven Matz for the start of Sunday against visiting Washington. Matz comes from a 6-3 win against San Francisco with two runs allowed in five innings.
About 5-2-1 in Washington is the last 8 overall and about 5-2-1 in Washington is the last 8 on grass and the bottom is 38-16-1 in Washington's last 55 road games. NY Mets are 5-2 in their last 7 general and are 2-5 in Matz's last 7 starts. Washington are 51-20 during the last 71 meetings in New York.
