Mets 8, Na­tion­als 5

HIGH­EST WIN EX­PECTANCY 81 per­cent

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Syn­op­sis: The first of three straight gut-wrench­ing losses. The Na­tion­als had leads in the sixth in­ning or later in each and blew all three games. On this day, the Na­tion­als erased a three-run deficit with Wil­son Ramos’s grand slam in the fourth. But Max Scherzer gave up a run in the fifth and another in the sixth. Then the bullpen couldn’t keep the game tied. Blake Treinen, Felipe Rivero, Casey Janssen and Matt Thorn­ton all played a role in the three-run sev­enth.
