The Mets entered today’s doubleheader with the Nationals on the very last stand of a potential playoff run. And, it appeared, that they were about to put their best foot forward to achieve that goal, with the two-time reigning Cy Young Award winner going for the Mets. But, like so many things both with the Mets, and 2020 in general, things did not go as planned, and the Mets wound up both eliminated from the playoffs and fighting for last place against their opponents this evening. It was a rough night, folks.
The first game was frustrating because it seemed like everything was lined up for a victory.
