Strasburg settles down, Nats end Mets’ perfect home record
NEW YORK (AP) -- An agitated Stephen Strasburg settled down in a hurry after a rocky start and the Washington Nationals became the first visiting team to win at Citi Field this season, beating the New York Mets 8-2 on Thursday night.
The Mets had opened 10-0 at home for a team record-tying 12-game streak over two seasons.
Washington took advantage of yet another error by shaky shortstop Wilmer Flores to rally for its third straight win, matching its longest streak this year. Bryce Harper hit two doubles, including a three-run drive in the ninth inning.
Strasburg (2-2) gave up two runs and six hits in 5 1-3 innings, striking out seven.
Jacob deGrom (2-3) allowed five hits and three earned runs in 5 1-3 innings.
