The Nationals completed a 4-game sweep of the Mets at Citi Field and leapfrogged the Mets for 3rd place in the NL East. The Mets are now 8 games under .500, at 71-79.
Really, what’s to say about this game (or the series, for that matter)? After playing inspired baseball for most of the year, this team now looks like it just wants October to get here already so they can hit the golf courses. The offense scored 1 run (they’ve scored a combined 5 runs in this series), the defense committed another 2 errors, and the bullpen got rocked for 8 runs.
