Sunday Night Baseball heads into New York as NL East rivals get set for battle.
Washington has the division all but wrapped up, but the Mets continue their push toward a Wild Card spot, needing a win here.
The Nationals saw their 4 game winning streak come to an end on Saturday night, but they continue to maintain comfort room in the division.
Washington currently sits 9.5 games up on the Mets, despite yesterday’s loss.
It’s been the Rookie of the Month who has been the biggest spark plug. Trea Turner hit .357 with 5 homers, 15 runs batted in, and racked up 11 stolen bases in the month of August.
Reynaldo Lopez takes the mound on Sunday night, who steps into the rotation to give Max Scherzer an extra day of rest.
Lopez allowed 6 runs, 4 earned, back on August 23rd against the Orioles in an 8-1 setback.
He’s shown plenty of impressive signs when it comes to starting, as he posted back to back quality outings, allowing just 3 runs over 14 innings of work.
New York Mets
New York continues their push toward the postseason, as they grabbed a giant win Saturday to get within 1.0 game of the Cardinals for a Wild Card spot.
New York continues to feed off the home field advantage, as they sit 4 games over the .500 mark inside Citi Field.
The key for them has been hitting homeruns at home. When they homer at home, they are 32-18.
After leaning on a rookie Saturday, the Mets will send another rookie out in Seth Lugo here on Sunday night.
Lugo has been very efficient and effective over his past 3 starts, going 2-1 with a 2.55 ERA.
In 6 games at Citi Field, Lugo has compiled an ERA of just 2.76.
