Mets spoil Nationals' night, win 8-5
WASHINGTON (AP) - Jose Reyes drove in two runs, and the New York Mets made Chien-Ming Wang's return to the big leagues a short one with a 8-5 win over the Washington Nationals on Friday night.
Ronny Paulino finished with three hits, and David Wright and Jason Bay each had two as the Mets scored four times in the first inning en route to their fifth straight win. It was New York's major-league leading 33rd road win.
Dillon Gee (10-3) allowed three runs and four hits over 6 2-3 innings and hit an RBI single in the fourth.
Wang (0-1) couldn't help the Nationals in his first major league appearance two years to the day after he had shoulder surgery. The right-hander gave up six runs on eight hits in four innings.
Jason Isringhausen pitched the ninth for his fifth save.
