Hush! Alonso’s 1st ‘granny’ helps Bassitt, Mets top Nats 5-0


AP National Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pete Alonso hit his first career grand slam, Chris Bassitt won his Mets debut and New York beat the Washington Nationals 5-0. Alonso’s homer came in the fifth inning off starting pitcher Joan Adon. Bassitt allowed three singles in six scoreless innings. New York acquired him in a trade with Oakland last month. New York is 3-0 for the first time since 2012 and will go for the sweep Sunday. Juan Soto had two hits for the Nationals, who are 0-3 for the first time since 2009. They have been outscored 17-4 so far.
