The Nats regained a winning record when they beat the New York Mets 6-2 at Citi Field.  “Fifth starter” Ross Detwiler was outstanding as he struck out six Mets over five innings and prevailed over Dillon Gee.  In his first outing, Detwiler took the early season HOV-2 lead by recording three of them.

First Inning: After allowing two leadoff hits, Detwiler struck out Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda to earn his first HOV-2.

Third Inning: Detwiler followed up his first HOV-2 with his second by striking out Ruben Tejada and Murphy.

Fourth Inning: Detwiler improved from two HOV-2s to three after he sat down Jason Bay and Justin Turner in the fourth inning.

Seventh Inning: Sean Burnett struck out Ike Davis to end the seventh inning.

Eighth Inning: Set-up man extraordinaire Tyler Clippard entered the game and, after putting two men in scoring position with only one out, got Bay to strike out swinging for the second time.

Ninth Inning: Brad Lidge added to his HOV-2 total after he struck out Turner and pinch hitter Mike Baxter.

  • Detwiler recorded three HOV-2s in his outing.
  • Strikeouts in the game: 10.
  • Strikeouts in the 2012 season: 42.
