Mets 8, Na­tion­als 7

HIGH­EST WIN EX­PECTANCY 99 per­cent

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Syn­op­sis: The Na­tion­als’ worst loss of the sea­son came when they couldn’t hold a six-run lead. The sev­enth in­ning was a slow bleed: three re­liev­ers (Blake Treinen, Felipe Rivero and Drew Storen) com­bined to al­low six runs, three hits and six walks. Only 19 of the 54 pitches thrown that in­ning were strikes. Storen came in to hold a four-run lead but gave up a bases-clear­ing dou­ble to Yoe­nis Ce­s­pedes and walked three straight bat­ters, in­clud­ing one that plated the go-ahead run.
