Taylor Jordan (1-3) gave up one run on five hits while fanning seven and walking one over six innings to pick up his first major league win.
Marlon Byrd went 2-for-3 and drove in the lone run for the Mets. Starter Carlos Torres (1-2) lasted just three innings, surrendering eight runs on nine hits and a walk.
In the second, Torres put runners on the corners after allowing a one-out double to Desmond and a single to Span. Ramos' base hit to right center plated Desmond.
Jordan advanced the runners with a sacrifice bunt and Harper delivered a two- RBI single to left.
The Nationals blasted Torres for five runs in the third. Ryan Zimmerman hit a leadoff double and Jayson Werth walked with one out. Desmond delivered an RBI single to right and Ramos capped the inning with a grand slam two batters later.
The Mets got on the board in the fourth. Eric Young singled to begin the frame and scored on a two-out single to center by Byrd.
However, Washington scored two runs in the home half. Back-to-back singles by Anthony Rendon and Zimmerman started the inning. After Adam LaRoche grounded into a double play, Werth scored Rendon with a single to left.
Following a walk to Desmond, Span scored Werth with a single up the middle. However, on the same play, Desmond was thrown out trying to reach third.
The Nationals weren't done scoring, as they added three more runs in the sixth. Werth knocked a two-out single to right. He got to second on a wild pitch by David Aardsma and third on a passed ball before scoring on a single by Desmond. Span followed with a two-run shot to give the team a 13-1 advantage.
In the eighth, leadoff man Steve Lombardozzi singled and scored when Desmond ripped a two-out double to right and Andrew Brown had trouble grabbing the ball after it bounced off the right-field wall.
Ryan Mattheus came out in the ninth for the Nationals. He loaded the bases after allowing back-to-back singles to Juan Lagares and Omar Quintanilla and walking Brown.
Fernando Abad replaced Mattheus and retired Young, Josh Satin and Anthony Recker to end the game.
