Game Preview: Nationals vs Mets

The Mets go for a Sunday Day win, a series sweep, and their 9th win in a row today as they finish their set with the Nationals. For the second time in two nights the Mets beat the Nationals yesterday by coming back from being down, twice! The Nationals struck early on a two run shot by Soto and took the air out of the ballpark. A few innings later Davis and Ramos went back to back, re-energizing the 43,000+ in attendance, the second most attended game of the year. Soto then homered, again, giving the Nats the lead until Luis Guillorme played unlikely hero, tying the game up with a solo shot before the Mets went ahead for good. The team did not quit. The ballpark was electric. We get to do it all again today!
