After finishing off a three-game sweep over the Marlins, who occupy the cellar in the National League East, the Nationals welcome the fourth-place Mets to town. Then it’s off to Philadelphia for three against the third-place Phillies.
The tour of mediocre division opponents continues.
The Mets come to D.C. having lost 11 of their last 17. They’ll send right-hander Dillon Gee to the mound tonight, a guy who has had plenty of success against the Nats recently.
Gee has gone 3-1 with a 2.10 ERA in four starts against the Nats this season.
Jordan Zimmermann goes for the Nats, looking for his 16th win of the season, which would lead all National League starters.
