Lannanmas! John Lannan wins third consecutive start, Nats sweep Mets

Music please. Thank you.

Step right up and SWEEP the Mets!
Bring your kiddies,
bring your wife;
Guaranteed to have the time of your life
because the NATS are really sockin’ the ball; knocking those home runs over the wall!
East side,
West side,
everybody’s coming down
to meet the N-A-T-S Nats of WASHING-TON

Last night American hero and Long Island native John Lannan won his third consecutive start to open his MLB season (a team record) and helped the Washington Nationals shutout and sweep the New York Mets in Queens.

I find myself nodding in agreement with Burnett there. Lannan was expected to be the #5 starter, but found himself as a $5 million AAA pitcher instead. He’s made the most of his MLB time this season though, winning his first 3 starts. His outing last night was typical, lots of groundball outs, some trouble, but overall solid.

The bullpen held on and solo home runs by Ryan Zimmerman and Ian Desmond were all the scoring the Nats managed. Mets rookie Matt Harvey dominiated the Nats, striking them out 10 times in five innings. The Nats still found a way to win.
