On Saturday afternoon, Mets’ Juan Lagares showed off his glove by taking away a homer from Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth.
Not only did Lagares rob the home run, he also took one deep in the game. Ever since Lagares had gotten off the DL, the New York center fielder has been a major boost for the Mets.

New York veteran starting pitcher Bartolo Colon had been inconsistent lately, but managed to shut down the door on Saturday and get the win allowing only two runs in eight innings against the Nats.
New York ended up beating Washington with the score of 5-2. The Mets will finish up the series on Sunday.
