The Mets end their road trip with another loss in Washington

The Mets end their road trip with another loss in Washington

Hey, at least it wasn’t another pathetic blowout. After an historic trouncing last night at the hands of the Nationals, the Mets lost a second game in a row to the Nats, this time a far more respectable 5-3. Noah Syndergaard made his first start back from the disabled list, and was promptly greeted by a lead-off single by Adam Eaton. A Trea Turner fielder’s choice would erase Eaton, but Turner would then steal second and score on a Bryce Harper single, putting the Nationals up 1-0. The Mets would not get a base runner until the third inning, when both Devin Mesoraco and...

Watch a dozen? Ten? *Some* of the Nationals’ runs from their 25-4 win

There isn’t video for all of it. It’s probably okay. The Nationals had a stressful day on Tuesday. It included trading a fan-favorite veteran because was characterized as a “squeaky wheel” by one reporter in the clubhouse, rumors including Bryce Harper, and an apologetic presser from Trea Turner regarding old tweets. The Nationals managed to find a different story for everyone to write about. They did that by playing baseball really, really well, something they haven’t done consistently all year. Think 25-runs well, with seven innings of one-run pitching from Tanner Roark. It...
