Gio Gonzalez has kidded about what makes him so successful at Citi Field — the Latin cuisine in the clubhouse, the jets that fly overhead, the odd angles and neat architecture.
Game Womens Tony Jefferson Jersey His career record at the Mark Jackson Youth jersey New York Mets’ home is no joke: 11-1 with a 1.78 ERA.
Gonzalez won again at his home away from home, Trea Turner kept Washington in gear all game and the Nationals beat the Mets 5-2 Tuesday night.
Food, I don’t know, airplanes, Gonzalez said. It’s a beautiful ballpark.
A day after topping the Mets with an eighth-inning rally from a five-run deficit, the Nationals never trailed. Bryce Harper put them ahead early with a sacrifice fly and slumping Ryan Zimmerman hit a late RBI single for insurance.
When he starts doing that, he’s fun to watch, manager Dave Martinez said.
Gonzalez (2-1) was the only player on the field in short sleeves on a chilly, breezy night. He allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings, avoiding big trouble despite eight hits and two walks.
I learned from an early age you’ve got to want that fifth at-bat, Hoskins said. Somehow, the baseball gods always seem to put that guy in situations to try to win the game.
Hoskins also grounded into a double play.
The first couple of at-bats for him weren’t his best of the season, manager Gabe Kapler said. To see him really dig in there and get a big knock against a guy with some velocity is pretty awesome.
Franco’s hit sent what was left of the small crowd headed for the exits, except for one irate Braves fan whose rant could be heard throughout the stadium.
For much of the night, the Phillies struggled with runners in scoring position. They grounded into four inning-ending double plays — each time with two runners aboard.
