After Steven Matz was lit up for seven runs in less than an inning of work, the Nationals continued to pile onto the Mets' bullpen on Tuesday night in what was the most lopsided loss in Mets history.
The Nationals scored three runs every inning from the second until the fifth and then tacked on six more in the eighth inning.
Jacob Rhame and Jose Reyes allowed six runs apiece, while Tim Peterson and Tyler Bashlor allowed three runs.
Jerry Blevins and Drew Smith were the only two Mets pitchers to avoid giving up runs; Smith pitched a scoreless inning and Blevins pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings.
The Mets pitching staff allowed 26 hits and walked eight batters.
