New York Mets
The Mets enter this series red-hot, winning eight of their last eleven.
While the Mets most recently loss to Miami in a crucial game for wildcard positioning, the Amazin’s are nonetheless avid about making a late playoff push.
On the mound for the Mets, newcomer Robert Gsellman who for the Nats may be a doding a bullet when they do not have to deal with the likes of Jacob DeGrom or Noah Syndergaard.
The Mets offense has always been their downfall.
The Amazin’s have struggled mightily from the plate all season long but with Yoenis Cespedes returning from injury, the bats are starting to come alive once again.
