    WASHINGTON (AP) — In some respects Houston Astros Jersey , the first game of 2019 felt a bit like a remnant of 2018 all over again for manager Dave Martinez and the Washington Nationals.As much as the roster has been reworked after missing the playoffs, with plenty of folks gone — most prominently, of course, Bryce Harper — and plenty arrived to replace them, the sorts of things that ailed the Nationals last season were again on display in a 2-0 loss to the New York Mets on opening day.That included an up-and-down-the-lineup inability to hit in the clutch and one particularly bad example of baserunning by rookie center fielder Victor Robles.“You’re going to have a couple shots, and you better make the most of it,” right fielder Adam Eaton said. “If you don’t, you’re not going to be successful.”The Nationals wasted Max Scherzer’s at-times dominant debut: 12 strikeouts, two hits, two runs in 7 2/3 innings. They were facing the only pitcher who received more NL Cy Young Award votes than Scherzer did last year, Jacob deGrom, who struck out 10 in six scoreless innings for the Mets.And Washington certainly did create some chances against deGrom. Runners at first and second in the first inning. Runners at the corners with no outs in the third. Another runner stranded at third in the sixth.“Losing in general is frustrating. It’s a long , long season. I think we’ll put this behind us pretty quick,” said shortstop Trea Turner, who stole three bases and had two singles but also struck out after getting ahead in the count 2-0 with two on. “Nothing’s won or lost on the first day, so we’ll be all right and we’ll move on.”Harper led the team with 34 homers and 100 RBIs last season; he played Game 1 of his $330 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday.So Washington probably could do without blunders such as what happened with Robles after he doubled leading off the third. Eaton followed with a single, giving the Nationals guys at first and third with no outs.Turner went to the plate expecting a safety squeeze call with the speedy Robles 90 feet away — but ended up striking out.That brought up No. 3 hitter Anthony Rendon, who sent a grounder to third. Robles hesitated as the third baseman threw to second base for a forceout. Robinson Cano then saw Robles heading home and threw to the plate; Robles got stuck in a rundown, leading to a 5-4-2-5 double play that ended the inning.“To be honest, I got a little confused,” Robles said through a translator. “In the middle of the moment, I realized I had made the mistake, so I tried to kind of make up for it.”Too late.“That’s just a young base-running mistake by him,” Martinez said. “We talked about it Hector Rondon Jersey , and he understood. … As soon as the ball was hit, he froze a little bit.”Notes: After Friday’s day off, the teams resume their series Saturday, with Nationals RHP Stephen Strasburg starting against Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard. Strasburg is 8-5 with a 2.83 ERA in 17 career starts against the Mets; Syndergaard is 0-3 with a 5.79 ERA in five starts at Nationals Park. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Noah Syndergaard stopped worrying about his mechanics and focused on making pitches.In doing so, the New York Mets right-hander might have solved one of the biggest issues that has plagued him most of the year.Syndergaard pitched a two-hitter for his first career complete game, striking out 11 as the Mets beat the San Francisco Giants 4-1 on Sunday.“It’s definitely really encouraging, a step in the right direction,” Syndergaard said. “I didn’t really have to think about it that much at all. I wasn’t really fighting myself out there. Things just started to click and I felt more fluid.”Syndergaard (10-3) made his 81st start in the majors and topped the Giants for the second time in 12 days. He matched his season high for strikeouts, walked one and retired 20 of the final 22 batters.Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Syndergaard was more relaxed than in previous starts.“Maybe the last couple of outings he’s been worried too much about mechanics and internal things instead of just worrying about where the ball’s going,” Callaway said. “Today he went out there and the ball went wherever he wanted to, probably because he was focused a little bit more down at home plate.”Syndergaard allowed only two runners past first base and set the side down in order five times. He yielded a one-out triple to Alen Hanson in the third and a single to Evan Longoria in the fourth.The right-hander overcame a one-out throwing error by first baseman Jay Bruce in the seventh by striking out Austin Slater and getting Nick Hundley to ground out.“It was amazing to watch from my point of view,” Mets catcher Tomas Nido said. “He was just trying to go out there and throw the ball , not worried about little things that can sometimes get you out of focus. He just went out there and trusted his stuff.”Syndergaard continued a strong stretch by New York’s rotation. Over the past 15 games, Mets starters have a 1.61 ERA.“I kind of worked backwards for the most part a little bit,” Syndergaard said. “I think their game plan was to just come out and jump on the fastball and I didn’t really allow them to do that.”Michael Conforto hit his 20th home run, Jeff McNeil had two hits and two RBIs and Todd Frazier added a pair of hits.The Mets won for the seventh time in their last eight games at AT&T Park.Hanson tripled and scored for San Francisco. The Giants have lost three of four.Limited to a total of two runs in the first two games of the series, the Mets matched that in the second. Frazier led off with a single and Conforto homered off Chris Stratton (9-8).Hanson tripled and scored San Francisco’s lone run on Stratton’s sacrifice fly in the third.“We’re having trouble scoring runs,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “We have to find a way to score. You can’t sit on one run.”HANSON SHINES AT SHORTSTOPWith Brandon Crawford still resting his sore left knee, Hanson made his third consecutive start at shortstop and made a handful of defensive gems. Most notably was his backhand stop of Conforto’s sharp grounder in the fourth when Hanson ran to his right and made a strong throw for the out.“The defense behind me was unbelievable,” Stratton said. “Hanson was great.”ODDS AND ENDSSyndergaard’s final pitch was a 99 mph sinker. . The Giants were held to one run for the 23rd time this season and are 4-19 in those games. . Stratton drove in a run for the second time in his career. . Hunter Pence struck out as a pinch-hitter and is hitless in his last eight at-bats.TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: Crawford missed his third consecutive game. … OF Steven Duggar will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. … INF Kelby Tomlinson was called up from Triple-A Sacramento.UP NEXTMets: RHP Jacob DeGrom (8-8, 1.68 ERA) faces the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Monday.
