NEW YORK (AP) — Taijuan Walker pitched three-hit ball over seven innings in his first win for the Mets.

J.D. Davis hit a two–run homer in the first off a faltering Patrick Corbin and New York beat Washington 4-0 to take two of three in the matchup of NL East rivals.

Corbin lost his 10th straight decision dating to last August.

Walker, who signed a $23 million, three-year contract as a free agent, made his fourth start. He allowed a pair of leadoff runners but picked off Josh Harrison in the first.
