The Mets have been great at the plate in late-and-close situations.

The official definition oflate and closeis the seventh inning or later, with the batting team leading by one run, tied or with the potential tying run on base, at bat or on deck. In those moments, the Mets entered Friday’s play hitting .302 – best in the National League – with an OPS of .858 (seventh in baseball). The Mets are also hitting .276 from the seventh inning on – best in the National League. (Second in the NL: the Nationals, a .270.)

The Nationalspitching has not been stellar in late/close so far.

Samples are small, but the NationalsERA in those spots has been 5.06 – 22nd in the majors. Loro 1.50 walks and hits per innings pitched (WHIP) ratio is 20th in the majors. Ancora, it’s a small sample to this point, but it isn’t encouraging.

RISP-y business

In the early going, neither the Mets nor Nationals have been strong with runners in scoring position. Washington is hitting .228 in questa situazione, ranked 21st. The Mets are even worse, con un .186 media, worst in the National League and second-worst in Major League Baseball. (Cleveland is at .165.)

For Pete’s sake

The Nationalspitching staff has scared a lot of people the past three seasons. Pete Alonso would not be one of them. The Mets slugger has hit 11 homers in 29 games against Washington, carrying a .330 media.

Juan big loss

Juan Soto will miss this game for the Nationals after being placed on the injured list because of a strained left shoulder. Soto was off to a good start for Washington, colpire .300 with two homers in 14 Giochi. Lifetime against the Mets, Soto is a beast, con un .315 media, nine homers, 26 RBIs and a .980 OPS.

Simple division

Both of these teams finished in the bottom of the NL East last season, in part because they struggled in division play. Questa stagione, this division will be won or lost in how teams do against the foes in their corner of the world.

Finora, the Mets are 5-3 against the NL East, and the Nationals are 1-2. (These two teams had an opening weekend series postponed for COVID-19 protocols with Washington.)
