The Mets beat the Nationals, 8-4, at First Data Field on Sunday in Port St. Lucie >> Box score
Five things to know about Thursday's game...
1) Michael Conforto went 2-for-3 with an RBI, and would have been 3-for-4 (with a double added in) if not for a missed fair/foul call on a ball hit down the right field line.
2) Pete Alonso tripled (yes, tripled) to right-center field, belly-flopping into third base on the "slide." He finished 1-for-4, and has a 1.041 OPS this spring.
3) Jeff McNeil went 1-for-4 with four RBI, including a bases-clearing double.
4) Juan Lagares hit his first homer of the spring.
5) Robinson Cano went 2-for-3 and is hitting .418.
The Mets travel to face the Orioles on Monday at 1:05 p.m. in what is their final Grapefruit League game.
