And the Mets continue to roll, winning their fifth straight game, and maintaining their 5.5 game lead over Washington. Hopefully the Mets can enhance their lead before the Nationals series that will occur around Labor Day, as the Nationals have already lined up their rotation to have their aces pitch against the Mets, similar to what the Mets did to the Nationals.
- Noah Syndergaard got his first road win today
- Yoenis Cespedes hit another home run today.
- David Wright appeard sluggish over at third tonight.
- The benches almost cleared after Phillies management wasn’t pleased about Robles’ quick pitch.
