The New York Mets five-game losing streak came to an end after defeating the Washington Nationals 5-3 in MLB. New York scored four runs in the first three innings to take a lead they would never relinquish against Washington on Monday. It was a nice distraction from earlier headlines, which included questions surrounding manager Mickey Callaway’s job and a non-baseball related injury to Yoenis Cespedes.

New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes suffered multiple fractures of his right ankle during a “violent fall” on Saturday, according to the Mets. The incident occurred at Cespedes’ ranch in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen told reporters on Monday that Cespedes stepped in a hole. “He twisted and put his leg and foot in a difficult position,” said Van Wagenen, adding that Cespedes didn’t fall off a horse.
