The defending National League champions are sitting in 2nd place in the NL East race, but are just one game behind the rival Nationals.

The last three weeks have not seen New York playing their best baseball. The club has a record of just 8-10 since May 10th.

Known most for their pitching, the Mets have allowed seven or more runs on five different occasions in that span. They’re going to need more consistency if they want to stay with Washington over the long summer to come.
