Dusty Baker’s Nationals try to even things up in the second game of three with the Mets in Citi Field... Heading into last night’s series opener in Citi Field, the Mets had lost eight of their last ten overall, were 22 games under .500 with a 33-41 record at home in New York, and 1-6 against the Washington Nationals at home in 2017, with a 5-12 record against the NL East champs at home since the start of the 2016 campaign.

Mets Morning News: Mets beat Nationals in game featuring only three Opening Day starters

Mets Morning News: Mets beat Nationals in game featuring only three Opening Day starters

Your Saturday morning dose of Mets and Major League Baseball news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets It was a strange night in Queens as the Nationals and Mets fielded a set of lineups that featured only three men who started on Opening Day. One of those men, Daniel Murphy, merely pinch-hit. It was a testament to how banged-up both teams have been all year, and to the diverging fortunes of the franchises, which cause the Mets to jettison most of their opening day starters in trades. Still, a win is a win, and the continued heroics of Nori Aoki have at least provided Mets fans with some...

Mets vs. Nationals Recap: d’Arnaud’s two dingers and Nori’s heroics lead the way

Mets vs. Nationals Recap: d’Arnaud’s two dingers and Nori’s heroics lead the way

A powerful offense and perfect bullpen lead the Mets to a win. There was a time about six months ago you thought this game would be crucially important. As it turned out, the Nationals wrapped up the division race with three weeks to spare and the Mets are more than 20 games behind them. It’s still nice to take down the top dogs of the NL East. Even if it was their B team. And even if you saw plenty of cringe-worthy moments that show how the Mets found themselves in this position. Robert Gsellman got off to a troubling start well before he gave up a run. The top of the 2nd...

Final Score: Mets 7, Nationals 6—Weird and meaningless win

Final Score: Mets 7, Nationals 6—Weird and meaningless win

The Mets pick up a win in a strange game against the Nationals. The Mets took down the Nationals Friday night, 7-6, in the opener of their 3-game series. After falling behind early, the offense surged for the one of the team’s biggest come-from-behind wins of the season, snapping a 3-game losing streak. Travis d’Arnaud opened up the scoring with a solo home run in the second, but Robert Gsellman gave it back and then some. Adam Lind clobbered a 3-run homer in the 3rd, then a Howie Kendrick double and Victor Robles triple stretched it all the way to 6-1. By the next half inning, however,...

Dusty Baker sent a lineup of young players and bench players out against the Mets in the Nationals’ 7-6 loss Friday night... Dusty Baker informed reporters on Thursday night, after the series finale in Atlanta’s SunTrust Park, that he planned on resting most of his veterans in the series opener in Citi Field. “No. 1, I’m not putting them in to paint, I’m putting them in to win. And they’re playing today because everybody is tired...” - Dusty Baker on resting regulars vs Mets “Our guys have been busting it,” Baker explained, “and you can see a lot of times when you’re...
