Mets hope to keep slim playoff hopes alive vs. Nats

A win to start the final series of the season allowed the New York Mets to continue pondering the possibilities of mounting a last-second playoff push. A loss that all but locked up last place for the Washington Nationals moved manager Dave Martinez to remind everyone what they were able to do the last time Major League Baseball played a full season.

The Mets will look to maintain their playoff hopes for at least one more day Friday, when they face the Nationals in the second game of a four-game series between the NL East rivals.

Rick Porcello (1-6, 5.46 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for New York against Max Scherzer (4-4, 3.67 ERA) in a battle of right-handers, former teammates and former Cy Young Award winners.
