    Wheeler, Fedde Meet Again as Nationals Visit Mets



    -- The New York Mets ended an eventful Monday with a much-needed win. However, if they want to finally keep the drama to a minimum, they'll need to carry the momentum of that victory into Tuesday night, when they host the Washington Nationals in the second game of a four-game series.

    The Mets' Zack Wheeler (3-3, 4.85 ERA) is scheduled to oppose the Nationals' Erick Fedde (0-0, 3.38) in a battle of right-handers.

    The Mets at least momentarily stopped their skidding Monday, when Amed Rosario and Pete Alonso hit homers in the first inning and six pitchers combined on a seven-hitter in a 5-3 win.

    The victory ended a five-game losing streak for the Mets, who won hours after rookie general manager Brodie Van Wagenen held a press conference in which he gave second-year manager Mickey Callaway a vote of confidence.

    Of course, history is littered with votes of confidence that didn't amount to much, so the best way for the Mets to keep Callaway employed is to salvage the final week of a 15-game stretch in which they thought they'd make up some ground against sub-.500 opponents.

    The Mets are just 4-5 during a stretch of 12 straight games against the Nationals and Miami Marlins. After Washington leaves town following a Thursday afternoon matinee, New York hosts the Detroit Tigers in a three-game series beginning Friday.

    The Mets recorded just three hits total in being blanked in consecutive games by the Marlins on Saturday and Sunday. They exceeded that amount in their first trip through the order Monday against Nationals left-hander Patrick Corbin, who was coming off a 5-1 win over New York last Wednesday in which he struck out 11 over eight innings.

    "The at-bats were obviously more quality," Callaway said Monday night. "We grinded every at-bat out today. That's how you do it: Get their quality starters out early, whether you score runs off them or not. You grind out at-bats and get their pitch counts up."

    The loss was the second straight for the Nationals, whose only winning streak in the last month came when they won the last two games of last week's series against the Mets in Washington.

    Manager Dave Martinez, as he has all season, took solace in the Nationals' resiliency. Washington, which has lost 13 games by two runs or fewer and two more in extra innings, trailed 4-0 but had the tying run at first base in each of the final two innings Monday

    "We battled back like we always do and it's a shame that we couldn't pull it off," Martinez said afterward. "But we'll try again tomorrow. The guys are playing -- I say this all the time -- they're playing hard. I'm starting to see some consistency. Our at-bats are better."

    The loss Monday snapped a season-high five-game streak of games in which the Nationals scored at least five runs apiece.

    Wheeler and Fedde will be opposing each other in what amounts to a rematch of last Thursday's game, when Wheeler took the loss after allowing six runs over six innings in the Nationals' 7-6 win.

    Fedde didn't factor into the decision after he gave up four runs over 2 2/3 innings of relief in place of Anibal Sanchez, who exited with one out in the second due to a strained left hamstring.

    Now Fedde likely will get at least two starts in place of Sanchez, who was placed on the injured list Friday. Fedde is 0-0 with a 7.71 ERA in four career games (two starts) against the Mets.

    Wheeler is 4-10 with a 5.27 ERA in 16 career starts against the Nationals, whom he has faced more than any other opponent.

          Alonso Hits 16th Homer, Mets Rally Past Nationals 6-5


          by LARRY FLEISCHER

          -- With the Mets trailing by a run in the eighth inning, Pete Alonso drove a fastball from Tanner Rainey down the left-field line, well over the foul pole.

          "I talked to it," Alonso said. "I was like `stay fair, please' and it listened."

          Alonso set the Mets rookie record for home runs before the All-Star break with 1 1/2 months to spare, Amed Rosario had a winning infield single with two outs in the ninth and New York rallied from deficits three times to beat the Washington Nationals 6-5 Tuesday night.

          Washington led 1-0 in the fifth, 3-1 in the seventh and 5-4 in the eighth, but the Mets (22-25) kept bouncing back and won their second straight game after general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Mickey Callaway will remain the team's manager "for the foreseeable future."

          Alonso's 16th homer broke the team rookie record for the first half set by Ron Swoboda in 1965. Alonso turned on a 1-2 pitch from Rainey (0-1), and the ball rose 126 feet and bounced off the Porsche Grille restaurant. The home run call on the field was upheld by a video review.

          Rainey walked Adeiny Hechavarria and J.D. Davis starting the ninth, Kyle Barraclough relieved and Jeff McNeil grounded into a force out that left runners at the corners. McNeil advanced on defensive indifference and, with Robinson Cano on deck, Rosario hit a two-hopper grounder to shortstop and beat Trea Turner's throw.

          "He just willed himself to run faster it looked like to me," Callaway said "It was unbelievable."

          Rosario made it to first in 4.03 seconds according to StatCast.

          "I felt like I threw it good, but he can run," Turner said.

          Alionso clapped his hands and was mobbed by teammates between second and third before getting doused by Alonso.

          "The moment I hit that ball, I immediately thought I have to get there," Rosario said through a translator.

          Edwin Diaz (1-2) worked around a ninth-inning single for his first win with the Mets. Washington (19-29) lost its third straight and dropped a season-high 10 games under .500

          Mets starter Zack Wheeler gave up three runs and four hits in seven innings, while Washington's Erick Fedde allowed one run and four hits in five innings.

          Juan Soto homered in the second, but McNeil tied the score with a fifth-inning single. Brian Dozier put the Nationals back ahead with a two-run homer in the seventh, but Davis's three-run pinch homer off Wander Suero gave the Mets a 4-3 lead in the bottom half.

          Turner hit a tying double in the eighth off Jeurys Familia and scored on Soto's double against Daniel Zamora.

          "We're right there, but we've got to win," Washington manager Dave Martinez said. "The bottom line is we have to start winning."

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Nationals: RHP Jeremy Hellickson (strained right shoulder) was placed on the 10-day IL. Washington manager Dave Martinez does not think it will be a long stint. Hellickson saw a doctor Monday and was cleared to keep throwing. ... RHP Anibal Sanchez (strained left hamstring) had a bullpen session Tuesday and could throw a simulated game Friday.

          Mets: OF Michael Conforto (concussion) rode a bike on Monday, his first physical activity since being placed on the 7-day concussion IL. Callaway said he did not know whether Conforto would be activated when first eligible on Friday. ... CF Brandon Nimmo (sore neck) was a late scratch from the starting lineup. ... LHP Jason Vargas (left hamstring tightness) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday and could pitch this weekend against Detroit.

          UP NEXT

          RHP Max Scherzer (2-5, 3.72 ERA), the 2016 and 2017 NL Cy Young Award winner starts for Washington and RHP Jacob deGrom (3-5, 3.98), the 2018 NL Cy Young winner starts for New York in a rematch of opening-day starters. The Mets won the opener 2-0 as deGrom struck out 10 and allowed six hits in six innings. Scherzer gave up two runs and two hits in 7 2/3 innings, striking out 12.
