Mets top Nationals, 4-3, in extras


washington nationalsT.J. Frazier homered off Washington Nationals closer Mark Melancon in the 10th to lift the New York Mets to a 4-3 win Tuesday night.

Frazier’s blast, his first career MLB homer, came moments after the Nats (84-59) had rallied for two in the bottom of the ninth off Mets closer Jeurys Familias.

Anthony Rendon (.276/.354/.461, 18 HR, 76 RBI) and Wilson Ramos (.304/.355/.490, 20 HR, 77 RBI) each hit RBI singles in that rally to get the game to extras.

A.J. Cole (1-2, 4.71 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) got a no-decision, giving up three runs on nine hits in five innings of work, striking out six and walking two.

Noah Syndergaard (13-8, 2.43 ERA, 1.11 WHIP) also got a no-decision after a solid outing, striking out 10, walking one, and giving up a run on four hits for New York (77-68).
