The Washington Nationals wasted no time against the New York Mets Wednesday night, pouring on a crooked number in the first inning. 

After Doug Fister promptly sat down the Mets in order to start the game, Washington exploded for three runs. Fister worked quickly and efficiently, keeping the Mets off balance, uncomfortable and impotent.

The Mets finally chased Fister in the eighth inning, when they touched home for the first time. Daniel Murphy's slow grounder snuck through the infield, and Juan Lagares scored.

Adam LaRoche belted a pair of home runs for the Nationals. He has homered 26 times against the Mets, ranking fourth among active players.
