Washington fail to win two straight series
After a surprise road win over the Los Angeles Dodgers (4-1, 8-3, 1-7), Dave Martinez's team was unable to beat St. Louis on their home field, although they did snag one of three games against the Cardinals – 2-6, 7-6, 0-5. One out of three is already a good total for the Nationals against one of the strongest teams in the National League. Washington remains at the bottom of the conference standings with a 35-68 balance.
Starting on the mound for Washington in the first game of the regular divisional series against the New York Mets will be Patrick Corbin, 4-14 and a 6.49 ERA in his 21st game this season.
Mets retain division lead
The New York Mets have won two straight series. Before a 6-4, 4-0, 9-3 shutout against the Marlins, Buck Showalter's team beat the American League-leading New York Yankees twice (6-3, 3-2) at home. Thanks to such a good stretch, the Metropolitans retained first place in the division, with a 64-37 balance lead over Atlanta by three wins.
Max Scherzer, 6-2 and a 2.09 ERA in 13 games this season, will pitch for the Mets in the first game of the series in Washington.
The score in the season series is 8-2 in favor of the New York Mets.

Thanks partly to the sure-to-be quality play of their starting pitcher, the Mets will confirm their status as a favorite in the first game of the series in Washington.
