Mets 5, Na­tion­als 3

HIGH­EST WIN EX­PECTANCY 95 per­cent

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Syn­op­sis: This se­ries fi­nale was a twisted replay of the pre­vi­ous two games and per­haps the mo­ment the Na­tion­als’ sea­son un­of­fi­cially ended. Stephen Stras­burg pitched well, strik­ing out 13, but he gave up the ga­me­ty­ing home run to pinch-hitter Kelly John­son in the eighth. When another bat­ter reached, Man­ager Matt Wil­liams brought in Drew Storen, who gave up a two-run, go-ahead home run to Yoe­nis Ce­s­pedes on his sec­ond pitch, a hang­ing slider. Af­ter the game, Storen broke his thumb when he slammed his hand on his locker.
