Nationals 7 Mets 4 as Winning Streak Ends

A few weeks ago fans gave up on the Mets as they dropped to 11 games under the .500 mark.  All of a sudden they won 15 out of 16 including the last two against division rival Washington Nationals.  This hot streak put them squarely in the hunt for a wild card spot.

With Jacob deGrom pitching today it seemed to be likely that this streak would continue, but it was not to be.  The game started on a bad note as the Nationals scored 3 runs on a throwing error by Pete Alonso.  The Mets quickly tied the game in the second inning with RBI hits by Joe Panik and Jeff McNeil.  There were no runs scored until the 7th inning when former Met Asrubal Cabrera doubled in 2 runs.  The Mets go close in the bottom of the 7th with a sacrifice fly by Michael Conforto.

Trouble reliever Edwin Diaz yielded a two-run homer to Victor Robles to make the final score 7-4.

Now the Mets must face the division-leading Atlanta Braves on the road.  Will this surge continue?
