Recap: NY Mets vs. Washington

Flushing, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Zimmerman went 4-for-5 with a homer and two RBI as the Washington Nationals completed a season-opening, three- game sweep of the New York Mets, 8-2, at Citi Field.

Adam LaRoche drove in three runs for the Nationals, who kept new manager Matt Williams' record perfect. Denard Span added two hits, drove in a run and scored a run for Washington, which opened the season with three straight wins for a second straight year.

Tanner Roark started on the hill in place of the sick Jordan Zimmermann and picked up the win. The right-hander allowed just two runs on six hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked three, helping the Nationals defeat the Mets for an eighth straight time.

Zimmermann was scratched from the start because of flu-like symptoms. The club didn't announce when they expect him to take the hill again.

New Met Curtis Granderson broke out of an early slump, finishing 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI. He had gone 0-for-9 with five strikeouts in the first two games.

Juan Lagares continued his hot start to the season for New York, which is off to its worst start to a season since beginning the 2005 campaign with five straight setbacks. The center fielder ended 1-for-3 with an RBI and is now batting .455 with two doubles, four runs scored, a homer and two RBI in three games.

New York starting pitcher Zack Wheeler (0-1) suffered the loss, allowing three runs on seven hits in six innings. The right-hander threw 114 pitches, striking out six and walking two.
