Mets RHP Corey Oswalt allowed one run on two hits in five innings against the Nationals on Sunday afternoon.
After a perfect first inning, Oswalt allowed back-to-back hits to open the second inning before Anthony Rendon scored on Michael Taylor's groundout. Oswalt then settled in and went onto retire the final 11 batters to face him.
Oswalt threw 59 pitches, 40 of which were strikes. He was replaced by Seth Lugo in the sixth inning.
It was yet another quality outing for Oswalt, who allowed only one hit -- a costly three-run double -- in six innings against the Phillies on July 9. Sunday's start marked his fourth MLB start and fifth appearance dating back to his Major League debut on April 25.
Oswalt has a 5.64 ERA this season for the Mets.
