Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets, 8/11/2019 Predictions & Odds

After dominating so many bad teams how will the Mets look against the Nationals

"But some things that we're doing right now, we're surprising ourselves".

Luis Guillorme picked a ideal time for his first big league homer - a tying shot leading off the eighth - J.D. Davis added a go-ahead sacrifice fly and the New York Mets worked their magic again, beating the Washington Nationals 4-3 Saturday night for their eighth straight victory. Despite the loss, they've still won 15 of their last 17. Mets fans cheered the All-Star closer when he went to the bullpen Saturday, and on Sunday, they clapped and hollered when his name was announced to pitch the ninth.

Luis Guillorme's home run sparked another rally as we came from behind to take the series from Washington. In the top of the ninth inning with NY trailing 5-4, Díaz allowed a walk and an additional two-run home run. Soto gave the Nats an early lead with a two-run blast off Noah Syndergaard in the first inning.

"But I didn't hit him in the chest; it's as simple as that. It was a great feeling".

Despite the obvious and apparent struggles with Díaz as the Mets closer, manager Mickey Callaway noted that his role won't be changing. Michael Conforto delivered a sacrifice fly to draw the Mets within one, but Daniel Hudson, Wander Suero and Dootlittle combined for 2 1/3 hitless innings to secure the win. "I'm just trying to get out of the rough stretch I'm in right now".

Wilson Ramos, celebrating his 32nd birthday, followed with a two-out drive to right-center, but Victor Robles made a leaping catch against the wall to end the inning.

FYI, the race in the NL East is SUPER tight now. with the Braves, Nationals, Mets and Phillies all only separated by 9 games!

It was the second consecutive blown save for Washington's bullpen and 22nd this season, tying the Mets for most in the majors. In 31 innings at home, Fedde has a 6.10 ERA and.280 allowed batting average.

"We've got to come back tomorrow and will it", Martinez said. But we're going to work hard and be diligent in getting the ball where we need to. The teams will not play again in NY unless they meet in the post-season.

Soto has 24 homers this season, and the 20-year-old already has four career multihomer games.
