When Carlos Gomez first came up with the Mets, they still played at Shea Stadium.
Twelve years later, Gomez recorded his first hit at Citi Field as a member of the Mets, and it was a big one in a 5-3 win over the Nationals.
Gomez hit an RBI double off Patrick Corbin in the third inning to give the Mets a 4-0 lead.
Also in the game, Amed Rosario and Pete Alonso both hit solo home runs in the first inning. In the eighth, Dominic Smith had a pinch-hit RBI single that turned a 4-3 lead into a two-run cushion.
