Nationals 4, Mets 1
NEW YORK -- Adam LaRoche and Bryce Harper each hit two-run homers and Stephen Strasburg threw seven strong innings for a rare road win as Washington completed another Citi Field sweep of New York.
The Nationals have won 11 straight games at Citi Field against the Mets dating to June 30, 2013. It is the longest winning streak by a Mets opponent in New York in team history. The Atlanta Braves won 10 straight at Shea Stadium from June 12, 1991 through Sept. 1, 1992.
Strasburg entered with a 1-8 record and a 5.25 ERA in 12 road starts this season but had little trouble dispatching the Mets, who got just two runners into scoring position. The right-hander improved to 9-10, allowing an unearned run, three hits and two walks while striking out eight.
