mets have perfect chance to increase lead over nationals


by the late innings, after a rare questionable decision from the manager and then some shaky defense, this one had the feel of a game that was getting away from the mets. except they obviously have something special going that makes them practically unbeatable at the moment. call it resolve, call it mickey magic, call it whatever you want, but the mets pulled out a 3-2 win over the brewers on a walk-off home run by wilmer flores, as they continue to ride this wave they may look back on as the difference if they go on to win the nl east. as it is, they've already jumped out to a six-game lead over the big, bad nationals, and have a chance to bury them a little deeper in the standings over the next three nights at citi field. sure, the phillies and braves are playing better...

nationals vs. mets series preview: a chance to come home and regroup


michael a. taylor is now hitting ahead of bryce harper in the nationals’ injury-depleted batting order. (jeff roberson/ap)the washington nationals earned a much-needed 7-2 win over the st. louis cardinals sunday night, sending them home on a late flight to d.c. having staved off a sweep. but this past weekend, and the shaky week before it, have left the nationals 14 games over .500, with their once-substantial lead in the national league east shrinking to a point at which anxiety would not be unreasonable. for reference, though, they still own the second-largest lead in baseball.but this week, they will play three games against the third-place mets and four against the second-place braves, the teams nearest them in the division. first come the mets, who are 7-3 in their past 10 games. th..

(mitchell layton/getty images)remember when the washington nationals and the mets were projected to duel for national league east supremacy until the very end this season? that seems like ages ago. by april 30, when the nationals thrashed their new york adversaries 23-5 at nationals park, injuries were already derailing the mets and the nationals already owned a 6 1/2-game lead over them.that margin has only grown over the last four months. when the clubs meet friday for the opener of a three-day, four-game series in washington, the gap will stand at 21.5 games. the nationals, coming off a series victory over the astros, are 76-49. they’re going to win their second straight division tit...






nationals unravel in eighth inning, miss chance to earn sweep against the mets


new york — when new york mets outfielder juan lagares sliced his go-ahead double down the right field line, one of those balls that stays just fair by a margin so small it feels fated somehow, it did not represent a death knell to the washington nationals. the nats had fended off impending doom once already this week. wednesday’s loss, which eventually came by the score of 11-5, wouldn’t break them now. lagares’s double, which came against ryan madson and gave the mets a two-run lead in an inning in which the nationals initially led by two, represented a clear warning shot. this week, the nationals proved they will not slide into oblivion after a trying start. but the mets will not back down, either. both sides will throw elbows. both sides will mount a charge. both sides will seem...






ryan zimmerman stays hot, but the nationals lose again to the mets


the washington nationals were presented an opportunity this weekend that usually doesn’t arise until much later in a baseball season: a chance to bury their chief divisional competition, the new york mets, before the calendar could even flip to may with a three-game series at nationals park. while the nationals had the best record in the majors and were bashing baseballs during the best road trip in club history, which included a sweep of the mets last week, the mets were limping through the end of april with six players on the disabled list just hoping they wouldn’t accumulate a deficit too big to surmount whenever they’re at full strength again.and it just so happened max scherzer and stephen strasburg were lined up to welcome their guests friday and saturday. but besides the scorc...






nationals unravel in eighth inning, miss chance to earn sweep against the mets


new york — fighting back means sustaining a few blows. scratching and clawing wears down the nails. climbing back from the brink takes energy. the washington nationals fought and scratched and climbed and clawed this week against the new york mets. eight innings into the series finale, they succumbed to their efforts and collapsed in an 11-5 loss. the nationals were six outs from a series sweep, but they had no fresh relievers to get them after battling through two close wins to begin the series. they turned to ryan madson for his third straight day of work — and his 11th appearance in 19 games — and he surrendered the lead and allowed the mets to build one. “before the game, i have conversations with these guys. guys tell me they are available,” nationals manager dave martinez ...






mets fall to nationals, 8-6, as bullpen implodes


the bullpen that carried the mets to such a hot start to the season completely collapsed monday night. after a brilliant start by jacob degrom, the mets bullpen allowed six runs in the eighth inning as the mets fell to the nationals, 8-6, at citi field. the mets (12-3) have lost two of their last four and dropped their first game of the season to a division opponent. it was the first blown save for jeurys familia this season, who allowed two of his inherited runners to score, coughing up the lead to the nationals.jeurys familia and the mets bullpen imploded on monday.(kathy willens/ap) but this collapse was in progress long before he got the call. the nationals chased degrom with one out in the eighth, with singles by moises sierra and trea turner, changing the momentu...






mets bullpen implodes in 6-run eighth for nightmarish loss to nationals


just when the 2017 mets seemed dead and forgotten came a flashback to that team’s worst moments.the mets can only hope monday night was a blip and not a sign of things to come for a bullpen that has excelled over the first two and a half weeks of the season but has often been stretched to the brink.in a gut punch, the mets blew a five-run, eighth-inning lead against a hurting nationals lineup and lost 8-6 at citi field.the nationals, minus injured daniel murphy, anthony rendon and adam eaton, battled against a mets bullpen that had pitched 11 ¹/₃ innings over the previous three days. it’s a bullpen that entered with a 1.51 era that ranked first in the major leagues entering play.the mets (12-3) lost for the second time in three games, constituting the first thing that has resembled ...

mets rally again and beat nationals 3-2 to improve to 6-1


washington — these mets are resilient. twice saturday, the nationals took the lead and twice the mets answered, rallying for a run in the sixth and two in the seventh for a 3-2 win at nationals park. it was the fourth game this young season the mets had broken a tie or come from behind to win, a characteristic that manager mickey callaway likes in this team. “it’s very important, we’re very pleased with it so far,” callaway said. “i think our guys go out there and they grind out every inning, whether the other team scores or not. but it’s always good to see them come back and score a run after the other team has.” amed rosario started the winning rally in the seventh with a leadoff single off righthander brandon kintzler, then scored from first on asdrubal cabr...






nationals have chance to bury limping mets this weekend


daniel murphy loves hitting against his old team. (seth wenig/ap)the road trip everyone in the washington nationals clubhouse scorned a couple weekends ago is over and it turned out to be the best one in club history. the nationals departed colorado thursday with wins in 9 of their 10 games in 10 days against the braves, mets and rockies to set the mark for highest win percentage on a road trip at least that long since baseball returned to the district. washington fittingly put an exclamation point on the stretch with a 16-5 drubbing of the rockies at coors field and finished the three-city trip with a run differential of plus-36 behind the most prolific offense in baseball.the nationals (16-6) own the best record in the majors, a four-game lead in the nl east, and already have surpassed .

mets fall to nationals, lose two in a row first time all season


maybe it’s not a tailspin, but tuesday night the mets look like they had a hangover from monday night’s collapse. with a lackluster offense, the mets dropped their second straight game to the nationals, losing 5-2 at citi field. it is the first series the mets (12-4) have lost this season and the first time they have lost two games in a row. the nationals (9-9) had rallied for seven runs in the final two innings on monday night. after that loss, mickey callaway had said the mets were a good team and could not let that game put them in a tailspin. tuesday was not the bounceback he was expecting. the mets were 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position, stranding 11 and let the nationals run all over them. the mets allowed three stolen bases — all led to runs.jay bruce reacts af...

how mets-nationals stack up in what may be best rivalry in 2017


west palm beach, fla. — did baseball’s best current rivalry hold a dress rehearsal thursday at the ballpark of the palm beaches?no, mets-nationals can’t hold a finger to yankees-red sox, dodgers-giants or cardinals-cubs when it comes to history and regalness. in 2017, though? mets-nationals has two critical attributes going for it:1) it’s close. the mets and nats are very evenly matched, whether you’re going by the eye test or by statistical projections. fangraphs has the nationals finishing 90-72 and the mets 86-76, while baseball prospectus calculates the mets to go 89-73 and the nats 88-74. the nl east is the only division on which these two respected analytical sites disagree as to who will win.2) it’s exclusive. one of the two clubs will win the division. you’re more lik...






control was a pain in the neck for jacob degrom against nationals


sporting a struggling offense and depleted lineup, the mets needed jacob degrom to be just about perfect on saturday. he wasn’t. while there were glimmers of brilliance from the young met starter — like striking out seven in the first three innings — ultimately degrom struggled with his control and walked a career-high six batters in the mets’ 3-1 loss to the nationals at citi field. “the base on balls killed him,” mets manager terry collins said. in the end, degrom allowed three earned runs on eight hits and six walks over 5.2 innings. he picked up his first loss of the season.mets put to sleep by gio gonzalez in loss to nationals “i feel like early on i had control of everything,” degrom said. “and then i was having a hard time getting the ball down...






amed rosario homers late, mets nab runner at home in 6-5 win


washington -- after the mets had blown a five-run lead, amed rosario homered in the top of the eighth and held on for a 6-5 win over the nationals in the first game of a split doubleheader at nationals park sunday. rosario hit his fourth homer of the season just after the mets' bullpen had coughed up the lead. it was a long day of work for the bullpen with starter tommy milone only getting into the fifth inning. he allowed one run on six hits, struck out five and walked one. it was by far his best start of the season, but he clearly had a short leash. he gave up three singles in the fifth, and after back-to-back singles to howie kendrick and wilmer difo driving in a run, mets manager terry collins hustled out to get him. it started a parade of six relievers.mets need to a...






mets looking to survive injuries, take series from nationals


each of the six mets-nationals series was always going to get plenty of scrutiny, in what has a chance to be the best division race in baseball this season. but suddenly this first meeting had a different feel to it, mostly because the mets are playing poorly and now reeling from a wave of injuries. honestly, what is it with this team, this franchise, anyway? injuries cause pain for many a team every season - just ask the giants, who lost madison bumgarner to a shoulder injury via a dirt bike mishap - but somehow they always seem to come in waves with the mets, often at the worst times. obviously april isn't as bad as august or september in a pennant race, but the mets were hoping desperately for good health early, at least partially to distance themselves mentally from t...

nationals lose again to the mets


the washington nationals were afforded a rare opportunity this weekend: to bury the new york mets, their chief competition in the national league east, in the standings before the calendar could even flip to may. while the nationals were bashing baseballs during the best road trip in club history en route to the best record in baseball, the mets were limping through april just hoping they wouldn’t accumulate a deficit too big to overcome whenever they’re at full strength again. instead, the mets have, outside of ryan zimmerman, tamed he nationals’ bats and mustered just enough offense to beat two of baseball’s best starting pitchers to begin the series. on saturday, they overcame stephen strasburg in a 5-3 victory at nationals park. what was a 7 ½-game cushion between the first-pl...






mets can’t rebound from brutal loss, fall to rival nationals again


in this version of “the hangover,” the mets applied pressure on the nationals before fading into hibernation on a wintery night.the opportunities were there for the mets, but the hit that would have turned the previous night’s bullpen implosion into something of a footnote never arrived. all the while, the nationals turned singles and walks into doubles against overmatched pitchers and catchers.the final destruction was a 5-2 loss for the mets at citi field that moved the staggering nationals to .500 and gave manager mickey callaway’s crew its first two-game skid of the season.the mets (12-4) will try to avoid getting swept three games in the series when steven matz faces tanner roark on wednesday.on monday the mets were gut-punched, allowing six runs in the eighth inning in an 8-6...






mets put to sleep by gio gonzalez in loss to nationals


the only saving grace for the mets is that they weren't no-hit. but that was of little consolation for the team in queens, who lost 3-1 to the nationals (12-5) saturday, their seventh loss in eight games. for most of the game, mets hitters were helpless against nationals starter gio gonzalez, who twirled a no-no into the sixth inning until juan lagares saved the day with a single. but despite breaking up the no-hitter, the banged-up mets (8-10) still couldn't come up with an offense to get the win. jacob degrom, meanwhile, was not at his sharpest. though he piled up 10 strikeouts, the young mets pitcher allowed three earned runs on eight hits and six walks saturday.collins ‘doubts’ cespedes will be available for nationals finale jose reyes, benched by terry colli...






nationals vs. mets series preview: a clash of division rivals in new york


will matt albers become the nationals’ de facto closer? (katherine frey/the washington post)while the washington nationals were busy going 2-5 on their recent homestand, which concluded with a 13-2 loss to the braves on wednesday, the mets were winning and making up some ground in the national league east. new york has won five of six games, including two of three against the cubs, to trim their deficit behind the nationals in the national league east to 8.5 games.that’s still not a small margin, especially for mid-june, but washington missed opportunities to augment their lead, thanks largely to the bullpen, in recent days. but the nationals still have another seven consecutive games against division opponents – four against the mets and three in miami – to expand the gap. washin...






the little, bold decisions that are defining what kind of team mets are


washington — the inning began simply enough: amed rosario smacked a line drive up the middle off brandon kintzler for a base hit. the mets were trailing the nationals, 2-1, top of the seventh. they’d already erased a 1-0 lead, but bryce harper had taken hansel robles deep in the bottom of the sixth.that had energized the modest nationals park crowd of 28,952.rosario’s single seemed to have the same effect on the mets. you don’t always learn everything about a baseball team in the first nine days of the season, but you do get nuggets, you do get snippets. and so far we knew this about the mets: in the 14 innings in which they’d given up a run so far this year, they’d returned the favor in their very next at-bat half the time.“i think it can be contagious,” mets manager micke...
