WASHINGTON (AP) - Ryan Zimmerman homered with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning Friday night, lifting the Washington Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the New York Mets for a doubleheader split.
In the opener, Jenrry Mejia pitched seven scoreless innings in his season debut and Daniel Murphy homered twice and tied a career high with five RBIs as Mets won 11-0. Murphy had two hits for New York in the nightcap and went 6 for 9 in the day-night doubleheader.
After Anthony Rendon grounded out, Zimmerman hit a 3-1 fastball from reliever LaTroy Hawkins (3-2) over the fence in right center. The Mets wasted another impressive outing by Matt Harvey, who gave up five hits and an unearned run in eight innings.
Rafael Soriano (2-2) pitched the ninth and survived a first and third one-out jam.
