Final Score: Nationals 5, Mets 4 — Joey Mets

Three home runs were not enough to take game one of the series. If nothing else, the Mets increased Jacob deGrom’s league lead in ERA over Max Scherzer.

For the Mets, Steven Matz pitched a solid 6.1 innings, only giving up three runs and striking out four. Matz didn’t have his best start to the night as the third batter of the game, Anthony Rendon, put Washington up 2-0 on his home run. He also drove in Washington’s third run with his second home run of the game in the...

Mets Series Preview: Mets face Nationals for final series of first half

The NL East division rivals face off for the first time in nearly three months. The New York Mets (37-53) conclude a rough first half of the 2018 season with a four-game set with the Washington Nationals (46-46), who have been on a downswing of their own, losing 17 of their last 25 games. Winning three games this home stand via walk-off homers from Jose Bautista, the undisputed Mets walk-off king Wilmer Flores, and Brandon Nimmo, the Mets head into this series with the Nationals in a very different place than the last time the two teams met in Queens on April 18. Back then, the Mets were...
