    Newest Mets Starter Font to Face Corbin, Nationals



    WASHINGTON -- It will be a veteran lefty against a newly-acquired right-hander when the Washington Nationals and New York Mets continue their division series on Wednesday night.

    Washington lefty Patrick Corbin (3-1, 3.20) has been just what the team needed after he signed a free agent deal prior to this season.

    Wilmer Font (1-0, 5.50), acquired by the Mets from Tampa Bay in a May 6 trade, made his first start of the year May 8 as he filled in for the injured Steven Matz.

    Font, a right-hander, threw 60 pitches over four innings in San Diego. According to mlb.com, he could last up to 75 pitches against the Nationals if things go well.

    In his last game, Font allowed two earned runs on three hits with a strikeout. It was his first start since June 29, 2018.

    "I liked his stuff," Mets manager Mickey Callaway told the New York Post. "A downhill fastball, good split, and he flashed a plus-slider a couple of times. He threw strikes and got ahead and did a heck of a job, so that was a great first impression and it looks like we have got a pretty good pitcher there."

    It will be the first start for Font against the Nationals. He faced them once before, throwing two scoreless innings out of the bullpen for Tampa Bay in June 2018.

    Last year Font had a 3.07 ERA in 19 games, with five starts, for the Rays after he was acquired May 25. Tampa Bay won 10 games in a row in which he pitched in from June 13, 2018, to April 17, 2019.

    He will face a Nationals lineup that is slowly getting healthy -- though not hitting.

    Starters Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto came off the injured list on the recent road trip, and shortstop Trea Turner (finger) began a minor league rehab assignment Monday at Single-A Potomac in the Carolina League.

    "Just let him go out there and get a feel of the game again," Nationals manager Dave Martinez said of Turner. "We will see how he feels after that."

    Martinez said first baseman Ryan Zimmerman (foot) and Matt Adams (shoulder) are getting closer to full health. Zimmerman did some baseball activities before Tuesday's game.

    "He's a lot better," Martinez said.

    New York native Corbin is 1-4 with a 4.83 ERA in his career against the Mets in 11 games, with 10 starts. His only win against them came in 2017 when he was with Arizona.

    Michael Conforto, a lefty hitter, is 6-for-14 (.429) off Corbin with four homers. The Mets hitters are 36-for-130 (.277) off Corbin with 10 homers.

    In the first game of the series on Tuesday, former Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos hit a grand slam in the first inning, and Noah Syndergaard went eight innings and gave up just two runs as the Mets won 6-2. New York improved to 20-20.

    "When you are winning, it is more fun," said Callaway. "Now we have to keep it up. We have to take off from here."

    The Nationals fell to 2-12 in the first game of series this year and are 7-17 since April 19. Washington has not won two games in a row this year.

    Corbin has faced the Mets twice this year, his first two starts of the season, giving up five runs on 13 hits in 12 innings with 13 strikeouts and three walks. He didn't get a decision in either game.

          Corbin Ks 11, Robles Homers as Nationals Beat Mets 5-1


          by HARVEY VALENTINE

          WASHINGTON -- For the second time in a week, Patrick Corbin righted the ship for the Washington Nationals.

          Corbin struck out 11 in eight strong innings and Victor Robles homered to help the Nationals top the New York Mets 5-1 on Wednesday night.

          Corbin (4-1) allowed one run and four hits to win his second consecutive start. Signed to a $140 million contract as a free agent in the offseason, the left-hander also beat the Los Angeles Dodgers last Thursday and has given up one run over his past 15 innings.

          "You always want to be that guy to take the ball and go out there and compete," Corbin said. "Just trying to put up as many zeros as I can and keep us in the game. They did a great job putting up five runs today."

          Corbin, facing the Mets for the third time this season following two no-decisions, retired 15 of 16 batters from the third into the eighth inning, often making New York hitters flail at sliders that ended up out of the strike zone.

          "He's able to throw that slider for strike-to-ball, and it's hard to lay off it," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. "It's one of the best pitches in the major leagues. He had good fastball command as well. He was kind of dotting that where he wanted to."

          The Nationals are 6-3 in games Corbin has started. His past two wins have ended four- and two-game skids, respectively.

          Anthony Rendon had three hits for Washington (17-25), which had lost seven of 10. He had two doubles and a single, scored twice and drove in a run.

          Wilmer Font (1-1) didn't make it through the third in his second start for New York after being acquired from Tampa Bay on May 6. He gave up five runs and six hits - including a homer and three long doubles - in 2 1/3 innings.

          Font was 1-0 with the Rays this season.

          J.D. Davis had an RBI double for the Mets, who had won three straight.

          Washington scored three runs in the first and two more in the third, with Font departing after Howie Kendrick's RBI double made it 5-1.

          "Tonight was a really big night for us, especially with a lot of the young guys making the strides that they did, having good at-bats," Kendrick said.

          CANO'S WOES

          Mets second baseman Robinson Cano (0 for 4 with three strikeouts) is hitting .191 (9 for 47) in May with no homers and one RBI.

          CORDERO CLAIMED

          Right-hander Jimmy Cordero, designated for assignment by the Nationals last week, was claimed off waivers by Toronto. He had been pitching at Triple-A Fresno.

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Mets: LHP Jason Vargas (left hamstring tightness) threw an extended bullpen Tuesday. He is eligible to come off the injured list Thursday. "We want Vargas to be the best version of himself when he comes back, so we're going to sit down and try to come up with a game plan to get him to that point, whether it's a rehab outing or just getting activated up here," Callaway said. ... LHP Steven Matz (forearm) threw a bullpen, one day after playing catch.

          Nationals: SS Trea Turner, out since April 3 with a broken finger, played his second rehab game at Class A Potomac and went 0 for 4 with a walk and a throwing error. . RHP Trevor Rosenthal (viral infection) said he will pitch Friday and Saturday at Double-A Harrisburg.

          UP NEXT

          Mets: RHP Zack Wheeler (3-2, 4.35 ERA) starts the finale of the three-game series. He is 4-9 with a 5.01 ERA in 15 career starts against Washington.

          Nationals: RHP Anibal Sanchez (0-6, 5.27) tries to avoid joining Jason Marquis (2010) as the only starting pitchers in Nationals history (2005-present) to open a season 0-7.
