The New York Mets battle the Washington Nationals

The New York Mets host the Washington Nationals in the final series of the regular seaso.

The New York Mets will take on the Washington Nationals, as the end of the regular season will conclude as well.

 The New York Mets are looking to claim home field advantage in the division series versus the Los Angeles Dodgers while the Nationals look to get revenge on the Mets from stealing away the division that they are still in disbelief that they lost. After getting swept by the Phillies the Mets look to grab back a stronghold of their ego in search of that swagger and confidence that they will need in order to make a deep run into the postseason. The Nationals have been busy beating up on themselves after Jonathan Papelbon got suspended for the remainder of the season after getting into a physical and verbal altercation with All Star Bryce Harper for not running out a fly out.

Probable Pitchers:

 

Friday: Gio Gonzalez (3.93 ERA) vs Noah Syndergaard (3.34 ERA)      

 

Gio Gonzalez will look to wrap up a disappointing 2015 campaign by starting of the series right for the Nationals and trying to keep his era at a sub 4. Syndergaard will get his last warm up start before the division series against the Dodgers and will try to continue to build off of his lights out performances over the past three starts as he posted a 3.48 era with 27 strikeouts.

 

 

Saturday: Max Scherzer (2.91 ERA) vs Matt Harvey (2.80 ERA)  

 

The Mets will be monitoring Harvey in his final start of the season, as they will plan on unleashing him in the playoffs. As for Max Scherzer, coming off a near no hitter in his last start and going for his 14th win and an impressive sub 3 era season total will be the goal for the veteran.

 

Sunday: Tanner Roark (4.63 ERA) vs Jacob Degrom (2.60 ERA)

 

After a strong start of 7 innings and two run ball, Roark will try to carry his team in the final game of the year and a bad season on a good note against the division rival champion Mets. Degrom will be pitching the first game of the division series against the Dodgers next Friday but having a good start could turn out to be the difference between pitching in L.A as opposed to New York.
