Mets evened up their weekend series late Saturday evening against the Nationals with a 5-2 victory.
Bartolo Colon earned his third win of the season surrendering just two earned runs in eight innings of work. Colon now has 192 wins for his career.
Juan Lagares drove in three runs going 3-for-4 with a home run raising his batting average to .304. He also robbed Jayson Werth of a home run.
"Well, he'll play tomorrow," Terry Collins said of Lagares.
The decision to allow the Mets young centerfielder to ride the pine in favor of proven veterans has been a hot topic of conversation amongst Mets fans. Most Mets faithful are up in arms with the organization's idea to relegate one of their more productive hitters to the bench and have him merely waste away.
