Nationals reinstate RHP Strasburg from paternity list


Washington Nationals' Anthony Rendon rounds the bases after hitting a three-run home run during the fourth inning of a baseball game against the New York Mets, Sunday, April 30, 2017, in Washington.

Mets pinch-hitter Kevin Plawecki, batting for deGrom, drove in a run with a bases-loaded single in the eighth off reliever Jacob Turner for a 6-3 lead.

"We'd have much rather lost the game then lose Adam", Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. "It's probably better news than we thought".

Jay Bruce heads back to the dugout after striking out against the Nationals, who swept the Mets in a three-game series last weekend. Even though it's still April, the importance of this series wasn't lost on the Mets skipper.

Any more loses could've officially started a manager watch on Terry Collins' job.

The Nationals will have to do without Eaton.

The person confirmed Eaton's status to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, because the Nationals had not made public the severity of the injury.

He was named one of the top 10 columnists in the country by the Associated Press Sports Editors in 2014 and also took first place in that category for New York State that same year.

Werth swiped second as Jose Lobaton struck out, and got up and tangled with shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera when the throw skipped away. Werth was thrown out by several feet and was shocked when the ruling stood. "I knew there was nothing happening in there".

In the third, Judge flipped head over heels into the crowd in pursuit of a foul ball. "I honestly didn't think about it. The Red Sox are also coming off a testy series in which they dropped two of three to the Baltimore Orioles.

A request to talk to the umpires was submitted too late to get comment.

Reyes scored on a groundout to second, on which Daniel Murphy cut down the lead runner at third, and Strasburg seemed like he would limit the damage, but he fell behind 3-1 on Michael Conforto and gave up a two-out, two-run home run home run on a 95 miles per hour fastball out over the plate that put the Mets up, 3-1. "We're hopeful that it's not as serious as it looked". "We have a lot of faith in ourselves. Things were going bad for a bit, but there's no panic in here", he said. The right-hander retired 15 of the last 19 batters he faced, including nine via strikeout.

The Mets will need a good showing this weekend in Washington if they don't want to fall further behind the surging Nationals, who posted a record of 9-1 on a three-city road trip that ended Thursday in Denver with a 16-2 thumping of the Colorado Rockies. He is unbeaten in four starts and has gone at least seven innings in each game.

John Jaso homered and drove in two runs, Jordy Mercer knocked in a run, and Gregory Polanco had two doubles for the Pirates, who have won three straight. He also passed Andre Dawson for second on the franchise's all-time home run list (Expos included) with 226 and passed Daniel Murphy and Harper for the league lead in RBIs with 27.

Jose Reyes hot streak continued, as he went 2-for-4 with two runs and a walk on the evening - possibly allowing Collins to move Michael Conforto to a more run-producing spot in the lineup, with Reyes again at the head of the order. He is hitting.270 with six homers in 18 games. Taylor doubled in the first and added singles in the third and fifth. Wheeler appeared in good shape after getting Bryce Harper to hit a comebacker that became a double play, but Zimmerman's infield single brought in the run.

"I really didn't have any expectations because he couldn't be as bad as he was past year", Baker said of Zimmerman.

Mets: Collins doesn't think he'll have 1B Lucas Duda (hyperextended left elbow) back Monday when he's eligible to come off the disabled list. Amassing a 3.17 ERA over the course of 952.1 innings of work, he now owns a 71-41 overall record to coincide with his 1,113 strikeouts against just 243 walks.

Right-hander Noah Syndergaard (1-1, 1.73 ERA) of NY will face Joe Ross (1-0, 6.17) of the Nationals. Syndergaard was scratched from his start Thursday because of biceps and shoulder discomfort.

Nationals: RHP Joe Ross (1-0, 6.17), is 1-1 in three career starts with a 3.86 ERA against the Mets. Starlin Castro tied it with a two-run drive in the ninth before Holliday sent the Bombers to their third consecutive win.
