The Mets maintained their 4-3 lead until Zimmerman, the 21-year-old third baseman, led off the ninth by crushing a 93 mph fastball from Wagner off the facing of the second deck down the left-field line at Shea.

The Nationals suddenly had new life, thanks to the first home run of Zimmerman’s budding career. And many of the 19,557 fans who braved 44-degree temperatures to witness the meltdown booed the $43 million closer while watching the Nationals’ ever-maturing rookie accomplish a first.
“Let me tell you something: He doesn’t look like a rookie anymore,” Guillen said. “To me, he looks like he’s a veteran. I think that kid’s going to put up some monster numbers this year.”
