    And Mejia did not allow any of his baserunners to score. So it was incredibly encouraging for the Mets to watch Mejia fire seven scoreless innings Friday in an 11-0 win over the Nationals, while Daniel Murphy's two home runs fueled the offense during Game 1 of a day-night doubleheader. Mejia, who had been working as a starting pitcher in the Minors since recovering from a lengthy bout with right elbow inflammation, overwhelmed the Nats over seven innings. Murphy has hit safely in 15 of his past 16 games. In the third, after Lagares doubled with two outs, Murphy put New York up 3-0 when he lined a pitch into the Nationals bullpen for his eighth homer. Zimmermann, who allowed seven runs in a career-low two innings Sunday in a 9-2 loss to the Dodgers, needed 118 pitches to go 6 2/3 innings.
