The New York Mets on the road on Tuesday night, taking on the Washington Nationals. Let’s just say that the Nats aren’t being gracious hosts.
In fact, the Washington offense was so prolific on Tuesday that it did something we haven’t seen in seven years, nearly to the date.
The Nationals are the first team to have each starter record a hit within the first two innings of a game since the Yankees on July 30, 2011.

The Twitterverse is certainly having some fun with this one.

Unfortunately for New York, that is not an option.
