It seems like a long time ago for the Mets when they were competing for the division title and they are just playing string out at this point. They only amassed five hits and scored one run yesterday on offense which has been their Achilles heel all season. Tonight the Mets will start RA Dickey who will be looking for his 19th win of the season. The loan bright spot for the Mets, Dickey has allowed 158 hits in 198 innings of work good enough for 2.64 ERA.
The Nationals are cruising towards the postseason and they actually should be approaching a legitimate magic number soon. They won last night behind the strong pitching of Gio Gonzalez who won his 19th game of the season. Tonight the Nationals will start Jordan Zimmerman who is coming off a win his last outing. Zimmerman has pitched great overall this season pitching to a 2.99 ERA in 171 innings of work.
New York is 6-22 in their last 28 road games, 1-6 in their last seven games overall, and 11-3 in Dickey’s last 14 home starts. Washington is 10-3 in their last 13 games overall, 2-4 in their last six road games, and 8-3 in Zimmerman’s past 11 starts. Washington has won six in a row in New York.
