The New York Mets came back to win in dramatic fashion on Friday night. And apparently they enjoyed it so much that they decided to try it out again on Saturday night at Citi Field as they once again broke the hearts of the Washington Nationals by taking a 4-3 win to record their eighth consecutive victory.
It was also six wins in a row over the Nats, who are now 6.5 off the pace of Atlanta for first in the NL East and only half a game ahead of their hosts. Early on, it was the Juan Soto show. The second-year star put Washington up 2-0 in the top of the first with a two-run home run. Two homers from the Mets in the fourth evened it up before Soto once again hit a homer, this time a solo shot, to give the Nats a 3-2 lead. But it wouldn’t last, as the Mets rallied once more, only this time doing so in the bottom of the eighth. Luis Guillorme would level it up with a home run before a sacrifice fly from JD Davis drove in what proved to be the winning run.
