Meet the Mets
Jacob deGrom was excellent once again but he was felled by a Trea Turner home run. He also allowed an unearned run to score, but he struck out eleven and reached the 200 inning plateau he was striving for. Brandon Nimmo took Max Scherzer deep and Jose Reyes helped cut into the lead late but since it is Sunday that is as close as they would come.
The Nationals easily won the season series and showed just how far apart these two teams really are.
Reaching 200 innings was a significant accomplishment for Jacob deGrom as he sets his sights on 2018.
deGrom is the only starter who made it through the season in tact so how will the rotation take shape next season?
Brandon Nimmo has shown some power recently and he believes more home runs are to come.
The Mets are asking for donations to help those affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

This Date in Mets History
The great Willie Mays announced his retirement and on this date in 1973 the Mets held “Willie Mays Night at Shea” to honor the future Hall of Famer.
Another Hall of Famer called it a career on this day as well. After being the voice of the Mets for 42 years, Bob Murphy called his last game in 2003.
