Mets INF Jose Reyes entered Tuesday night's game against the Nationals -- to pitch.
Reyes, who pitched the bottom of the eighth inning, got Ryan Zimmerman to fly out for the first out of the inning. But Juan Soto doubled and Matt Adams hit a two-run home run before Reyes went on to walk back-to-back batters.
Mark Reynolds then blasted a three-run homer to give the Nationals a 24-1 advantage.
From there, Reyes allowed a single, a triple, and hit a batter, but finally ended the inning by forcing Soto -- who was up for the second time in the inning -- to fly out.

Reyes was pitching for the first time in his career.
"When you're on the mound, before you throw a pitch, it's fun," Reyes said after the game. "But when you start to see people hit a home run and stuff, you get serious. Even though I'm not a pitcher, I don't want to see that."
In total, Reyes allowed six runs on five hits and threw 48 pitches on the night.
