New York won their third straight game last Tuesday night as they dropped the Marlins Tuesday night after using a five-run rally to win the completion of a suspended game. The Mets entered Thursday third in the NL East, five games behind the Braves for the division lead. In the NL wild card race, the team was 5.5 games behind the Reds for the second wild card spot.
Washington was swept in their three-game series with the Phillies at home as they let one slip away again. The Nationals entered Thursday night fourth in the NL East, 15 games behind the Braves for the division lead. In the NL wild card chase, the team stood 15 games behind the Reds for the second wild card spot.
Washington has had little to play for as things came apart during the season and that led to trades that decimated their roster. The Nationals blew a six-run lead Thursday and that is going to leave their bullpen rather frayed. New York had won three straight heading into the finale of the set on Thursday night with the Marlins and were hanging in the playoff picture. Hill has been decent since coming over from Tampa Bay and with Washington having nothing to play for, you have to back the Mets in this match.
