Recap:

Daniel Murphy went 3-for-4 and knocked in a pair of runs in the New York Mets' 6-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday.

Murphy backed a rather shaky start out of Zack Wheeler (7-8), who gave up just one run but allowed seven hits and four walks in hard-earned 6 2/3 innings.

Wheeler also had an RBI, while David Wright, Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Lucas Duda each drove in a run for the Mets, who had lost 10 of their last 11 to Washington.

Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez (6-8) was charged with four runs on six hits with six strikeouts for the NL East leaders.

Murphy ripped a one-out triple down the right-field line in the first and trotted home when Wright knocked a single to left in the next at-bat.

Travis d'Arnaud doubled to begin the second, scoring later in the inning when Wheeler helped his own cause with a bloop single to right.

The Nationals got something going in the home second after Wheeler walked three of the first four batters he faced in the inning. The Mets right-hander uncorked a wild pitch against Jose Lobaton that allowed Adam LaRoche to cross home, but Washington couldn't add any from there.

New York maintained its lead after a nice defensive play by left fielder Eric Campbell. Jayson Werth doubled to lead off the sixth and attempted to score when LaRoche poked a single to left, where Campbell came up firing to get Werth at the plate. The play was reviewed to see if d'Arnaud allowed a sliding lane for the runner at home, which umpires ruled that he did.

New York loaded the bases in the seventh with one out and Murphy ripped a single under the glove of Asdrubal Cabrera at second to plate a pair for a 4-1 advantage. Drew Storen struck out Wright preceding an RBI single off the bat of Duda.

Nieuwenhuis, in a pinch-hit role, singled home a run in the eighth.

Game Notes

Gonzalez went 6-1 with a 2.45 ERA over his last previous starts against the Mets ... Wheeler, meanwhile, entered the contest with a 1-4 mark and 4.75 ERA in five career starts against Washington ... New York snapped its two-game skid ... Wright stole his sixth base of the season ... New York went 5-for-14 with runners in scoring position ... Washington went 2-for-9 with RISP and stranded seven on base.
