Nationals aim to avoid series sweep vs. Mets

A four-game series between a pair of National League East rivals began Monday night with the New York Mets looking to end a disheartening slump. It will end Thursday with the visiting Washington Nationals attempting to do the same.

The Nationals will look to avoid a sweep Thursday afternoon when right-hander Stephen Strasburg (4-3, 3.32 ERA) takes the mound against Mets left-hander Steven Matz (3-3, 3.96 ERA).

The Nationals' bullpen frittered away another game Wednesday night, when the Mets scored six runs in the eighth inning of a 6-1 victory. Juan Lagares laced the go-ahead three-run double two batters before Rajai Davis hit a three-run pinch-hit homer in his first plate appearance for New York.
