NEW YORK | Just like last year, the Nationals are dragging things out in the final game of their season. They're tied with the Mets 1-1 heading into the 12th inning, trading zeros with New York after the Mets tied the game on a double play back in the fifth inning. Drew Storen just struck out Lucas Duda to finish 2 1/3 shutout relief innings.
The Nationals are the first team to play extra innings in their season finale in back-to-back seasons since the Red Sox in 1999 and 2000.
Washington has also lost 18 straight one-run games on the road.
