Meet the Mets
A rainout would have been nice. Instead, the skies cleared up and Mets lost to the Nationals once again. Washington got the jump on Seth Lugo, and the Mets offense couldn’t quite come back, leading to a 7-4 loss.
This was the Nationals’ sixth straight win at Citi Field. It leaves some to wonder how much of a “rivalry” the two teams really have.
Despite the losing streak, Terry Collins promises this series won’t make or break the season.
Two the team’s biggest contributors so far this season have suddenly become non-factors.
The one bright spot for the Mets Saturday was Yoenis Cespedes. But as planned, despite the circumstances, he won’t be on the field Sunday.
Around the NL East
For the Marlins, multiple parties were to blame for the loss.
You know the Nationals won. What you might not have noticed is how nice Bryce Harper was to his dad.
Around the Majors
He’s not headed to the Hall of Fame, but Pete Rose has gotten officially memorialized in Cincinnati.
Manny Machado had a really excellent day.
This Date in Mets History
Remember five years ago when R.A. Dickey suddenly became a Cy Young Award winner? This was right around the time of year he hit the peak of his sudden powers. On this date in 2012, he threw his second consecutive one-hitter.
