Nationals' Yan Gomes: Blasts two homers against Mets

Gomes went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets.

He blasted a three-run homer off Steven Matz in the first inning, then followed it up with a solo shot in the third off depth bullpen arm Eric Hanhold. Gomes sports a robust .375/.400/.792 slash line with three home run over 25 plate appearances this spring, but his 1:7 BB:K suggests a regular-season batting average closer to his .248 career mark is far more likely.
