Nationals Park gets it's first inside-the-park home run - by the Mets' Angel Pagan - and first triple play - also started by the Met centerfielder.
The Nationals are winning the game currently - Livan Hernandez has surrendered just the single run through 5 - and knuckleballer R.A. Dickey is making his NL debut.
Dickey is the kind of pitcher the Nationals might have picked up in years past. A big league veteran with occasional success, Dickey started the year on a minor league contract with the Mets.
