Mets relievers combined to toss nine scoreless innings in the series.
"I think the more those guys go out, the more comfortable they're going to feel," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "You know, Washington has got a great club. We didn't pitch very good. There's no question about that out of the bullpen. But our bullpen has done a good job ever since. They're starting to get comfortable. They're starting to understand what they've got to do."
