The crazy-assed Mets will be throwing it all over the place in Washington this evening, making baseball happen.

Lousiariqueño Seth Lugo returns for the Mets. They've already won once and they're out to do it again.

As mentioned during the first game, the Nats were planning on the night-cap being Scherzer's return but have instead delayed that until tomorrow (vs Miami) so we get to face Tanner Roark who was
originally supposed to start the early game.

Rosario gets a game-winning homer and is rewarded with a spot on the bench. Let him play, Terry!

Rosario has had a steady diet of playing time since he came up. More than anybody, I would guess. Butt-ends of doubleheaders are generally the time such creatures get their occasional rest.

The real story is Brandon Nimmo's debut in the three-hole!

I am counting on Rosario and Nimmo.

I used to love Cespedes but but what a load of unmovable flubber.

Howie notes that three Mets wear their ages on their uniforms:

Smith - 22
Plawecki - 26
Taijeron - 28

Nationally televised game, so no MLB feed for me or, I assume, for the other out-of-towners.

Yeah, Sunday night games are exclusive so it's ESPN or nothing (or radio).


So why wasn't that last play obstruction on Taylor walking right in front of Plawecki as he tried to throw to 2nd?
Neither the announcers (big surprise!) nor Terry brought it up.

Now isn't that better than a bunt, Juan?

Reyes and the newly indomitable Lagares collaborate to get the Mets on the board.

Let's go, Nimmo!

Gosh, though, what a silly selection.

Terry gets what he needs from Robles and then he asks for more.

Come on, with a paper-thin lead, they throw Kelly at us? That's just insulting. Don't take that sitting down, Mets.
