In this Mets vs Nationals post game news conference, Mets manager Buck Showalter talks about the benches-clearing incident in the fourth inning after Francisco Lindor was hit in the face by Nationals pitcher Steve Cishek, the fourth Met to be hit in the first two games of the opening series. Showalter said Lindor was “very lucky” he was not injured more seriously. He expressed his admiration for Max Scherzer’s performance, saying he he did exhibit some caution with his injured leg, but still pitched an outstanding game. Showalter also shared some sad news that Edwin Diaz’s grandfather had passed away and the reliever will be on bereavement leave starting Saturday.
