HARVEY VALENTINE, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Zack Wheeler pitched effectively into the seventh inning and the New York Mets piled up a season-high 17 hits in routing the Washington Nationals 11-3 on Saturday night.

Eric Young Jr., Daniel Murphy, Josh Satin and Juan Lagares had three hits apiece for New York, which scored 11 runs for the second time in three days and won its third straight.

The news wasn't all good for the injury-riddled Mets, though. First baseman Ike Davis left with a strained muscle on his right side after hitting a sacrifice fly in the third.

Wheeler (7-3) allowed two runs and five hits in 6 2-3 innings, striking out three and walking one. Since the start of July, the touted rookie is 6-2 with a 2.96 ERA.
