The Mets pounded out 13 hits, including three homers, and put the ugliness from Tuesday night behind them with an 8-4 win over the Nationals. They ended their six-game road trip against division rivals ahead of them in the standings at 4-2.
Robinson Cano made his first start since being activated from the IL and produced a three-hit game, including a two-run homer. Juan Lagares and Pete Alonso also homered for the Mets. It was the 45th homer of the year for Alonso, who now has 105 RBIs.
Zack Wheeler needed 101 pitches to get through five innings but he allowed just one run and picked up his 10th win of the season. It was another lousy outing from Jeurys Familia, who turned a 7-1 lead into a 7-4 advantage. That led to Seth Lugo coming in the seventh inning. Lugo pitched two scoreless innings and Justin Wilson closed out the game.
All eight starters had at least one hit except for Wilson Ramos, who saw his hitting streak come to an end.
