Mets Suffer First Loss of Season, Falling to Nationals

Ross Detwiler pitched five scoreless innings and the Washington Nationals beat New York 6-2 Tuesday, handing the Mets their first loss of the season on the same night they learned that David Wright had broken a finger.

Detwiler (1-0), a surprise addition to the back of the Nationals, allowed two hits, struck out six and walked one.

Ian Desmond homered off Dillon Gee (0-1) leading off the game, and Jayson Werth had four hits of the Nationals’ 13 hits and drove in a run.

New York said during the game that Wright’s right pinky was broken a night earlier when he dived back to a base.
