Josh Thole hit a two-run double and drove in three as the New York Mets got past Washington, 6-4, in the opener of a three- game set at Nationals Park.
Carlos Beltran and David Wright also drove in a run each for the Mets, who upped their season-best winning streak to five games.
Ryota Igarashi (1-0) recorded the final out of the fifth for the win in relief of Chris Young. Activated from the 15-day disabled list just before game time, Young lasted just 4 2/3 innings, charged with four hits and three runs, but also drove in one.
Wilson Ramos hit a pair of homers and Jayson Werth also went deep for the Nationals, who have dropped five of six.
Jordan Zimmermann (1-4) allowed nine hits and five runs over his 5 1/3-inning start.
