After Steven Matz was lit up for seven runs in less than an inning of work, the Nationals continued to pile onto the Mets' bullpen on Tuesday night in what was the most lopsided loss in Mets history.

The Nationals scored three runs every inning from the second until the fifth and then tacked on six more in the eighth inning.

Jacob Rhame and Jose Reyes allowed six runs apiece, while Tim Peterson and Tyler Bashlor allowed three runs.

According to WJCL's Frank Sulkowski, RHP Tyler Bashlor out of South Georgia College is set to sign a contract with the Mets. Bashlor attended Calvary Day HS in Savannah, GA.

According to Baseball America, Bashlor:

has raised his profile over the last two years, ranking as BA's No. 2 prospect in the Futures Collegiate League last summer and continuing to perform well this spring. .... Scouts report his fastball now sits at 92-94 mph and touches 97, and he flashes a solid-average slider with late break.... He didn't show great command (52 IP, 30 BB, 81 SO), and pro teams view him strictly as a reliever.
It sounds like Bashlor will receive over $500,000 to sign. As an 11th round pick, everything over $100,000 counts against the Mets' $6.99 million draft signing pool.
