Robinson singles in 7th for Nationals' 1st hit against Mets
Jonathon Niese, the fourth pitcher used by the Mets in the regular-season finale Sunday, gave up the hit. Robinson sent a sharp two-hopper up the middle that went between Niese's legs and caromed off the shin of shortstop Ruben Tejada as he tried to make a sliding stop.
The ball ricocheted into right field, and official scorer Jordan Sprechman ruled it a hit almost immediately.
Just before Robinson's hit, first baseman Lucas Duda made a diving play to keep the combined no-hitter intact - momentarily.
The game was scoreless in the seventh, one day after Washington ace Max Scherzer pitched a no-hitter against the Mets in the second game of a doubleheader.
