Today they hosted former Mets World Champion Manager Davey Johnson's Washington Nationals (2-2).
A crowd of 23,970 came out on a chilly night at Citi Field as Mike Pelfrey took on Edwin Jackson.
In the 1st, Pelfrey surrendered three straight singles giving the Nats a 1-0 lead. In the 3rd, Ian Desmond singled Ryan Zimmerman doubled making it 2-0 & Adam LaRoche singled making it 3-0.
In the 3rd Pelfrey helped his own cause with a lead off double. David Wright brought him in with a base hit. In the 4th Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit a two run HR to tie up the game at three.
Miguel Batista got out of a 6th inning jam, Ramon Ramirez & Jon Rauch got the Mets to the 9th inning, as did the Nats pen. Henry Rodriguez came on for the save, but got into trouble right away.
Mike Baxter drew a walk, then Ruben Tejada reached on an error. It was then Daniel Murphy who came through with the walk off single to right field. The Mets won it 4-3 to start out the season 5-0.
