Nationals 9, Mets 0
NEW YORK — Gio Gonzalez was inches from a no-hitter, and the Nationals hit five home runs. Gonzalez held the Mets hitless into the seventh before pinch-hitter Zach Lutz hit a soft single for New York's only hit. Lutz swung at the first pitch of the inning and hit a looper that landed on the first-base line, taking out a chunk of chalk well behind the bag. First baseman Adam LaRoche made a diving attempt, but the ball squirted by and into foul territory.
