Mets work more magic, rally past Nats for 8th win in row

Mets work more magic, rally past Nats for 8th win in row”

And for Mets fans, it's starting to get easier to believe.

Luis Guillorme picked a flawless time for his first big league homer - a tying shot leading off the eighth - J.D. Davis added a go-ahead sacrifice fly and the New York Mets worked their magic again, beating the Washington Nationals 4-3 Saturday night for their eighth straight victory. Guillorme entered with a.192 average in 56 major league games.

Trailing 6-3, the Mets rallied against closer Sean Doolittle to win for the 14th time in 15 games at pulsating Citi Field - New York had been 0-44 this year when trailing after eight innings. It was arguably the biggest tilt at the ballpark since the 2016 NL wild-card game, with a near-sellout crowd seemingly hanging on every pitch. It's the fifth time in his last six appearances that Díaz has allowed a run, and it pushed his ERA on the season to 5.60.

There's something special going on in Flushing right now. He spiked his helmet, was worked on by trainers in the outfield grass, and ultimately came out of the game.

The Mets, who were tied for 13th place in the NL and eight games out of the second wild card on July 24, have won 15 of their last 16 games to move within a half-game of the Nationals and Milwaukee Brewers, who are tied for the two wild-card spots. "I don't think you can ask for a better homestand than that". Soto was tagged out to end the inning.

Cabrera spent 2 1/2 seasons with the Mets before being traded to Philadelphia in 2018. He opted to sign with Washington instead of returning to NY after being released by Texas. "I'm just trying to get out of the rough stretch I'm in right now".

With that spot now endangered, Nationals manager Dave Martinez implored his players Saturday night to embrace the sudden competition with the Mets and to remember how Washington got back into the race. Michael Conforto delivered a sacrifice fly to draw the Mets within one, but Daniel Hudson, Wander Suero and Dootlittle combined for 2 1/3 hitless innings to secure the win.

Mets starter Noah Syndergaard allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over seven innings. "He's very poised, he goes out there and he's getting pitches to hit". It rolled to near the Mets' on-deck circle, where deGrom chased it down and threw to home plate. Catcher Wilson Ramos dropped the throw, allowing Soto to come in with the third unearned run of the play. Alonso was charged with an error.

"We have all the confidence in the world right now with us", Davis said.

Nationals: RHP Max Scherzer (back) "felt really good" following Saturday's bullpen session, according to Martinez. He is lined up for a simulated game on Tuesday. Fedde will be making his second start since he was recalled from Double-A Harrisburg on July 29.

Mets: There is still no timeframe for a rehab assignment for ailing OF Brandon Nimmo (neck) and IF Jed Lowrie (knee).

Juan Soto put the Nats ahead 3-2 with his second home run of the game in the eighth inning, but Guillorme countered with a pinch-hit, no-doubter off Fernando Rodney in the bottom of the inning. Anthony DeSclafani gets the ball, and he is 7-6 with a 4.20 ERA and 120 strikeouts this season.

NY started this eight-game run that day.
