Meet the Mets

It was not a pretty night in Washington for the Mets. After taking a 4-0 lead into the bottom of the third, a possibly-injured Noah Syndergaard experienced his worst inning of the year and gave up five runs.

The bleeding didn’t stop there, though, as Sean Gilmartin and Erik Goeddel proved equally incapable of stopping the Nats. The game ended as an 11-4 loss that the Mets will try to forget.
