    Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler was working in and out of trouble in the early going against the Washington Nationals, walking four batters and allowing a run on a wild pitch.

    So he asked catcher Travis d'Arnaud and pitching coach Dan Warthen a simple question: "Do you all see anything?" Warthen went into the clubhouse to check some video from Tuesday night's game and noticed Wheeler was "collapsing" instead of "throwing downhill," as the right-hander put it.

    Thanks to that mid-game adjustment to his delivery -- and Washington's own miscues, including one runner hit by a batted ball and another thrown out at the plate -- Wheeler pitched 6 2/3 innings to win his fourth consecutive decision, helping the Mets beat the NL East-leading Nationals 6-1.
