Mets' Offense Surging Just in Time to Face Nationals

The Nats and Mets begin a series tonight that could see New York pull even with their NL East-leading rivals with a sweep over Washington. It won’t be easy, though. The Nationals are 7-3 in their last ten and have been putting up plenty o' runs.

  • The Nationals are 21-7 in their last 28 road games against the Mets.
  • The Mets are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against teams with winning records.
  • The Nationals have a 9-game winning streak against teams in the NL East.

Although he only pitched four innings, Lucas Giolito was excellent in his MLB debut which was cut short by an extended rain delay. He gave up one hit, no runs and struck out one in a 45-pitch effort. He could shine again tonight against a Mets’ offense that has been getting a little better recently but is still one of the worst in the league.

Bartolo “Fountain of Youth” Colon is having, by most measures, one of the best years of his career at the tender age of 43. He has not given up more than two runs in a game since the last time he faced Washington back in May and will have his hands full again tonight as he faces a blistering hot Nationals’ lineup.
