Nats send Scherzer out in attempt to sweep Mets

NEW YORK -- The plan is simple for the New York Mets. The actual implementation may be considerably harder Sunday night when the reeling Mets host the surging Washington Nationals in the finale of a three-game series at Citi Field.

The Nationals (12-5) won their sixth straight game Saturday with a 3-1 victory over the Mets (8-10), who have lost seven of eight, a stretch in which they have scored only 23 runs.

On Saturday, Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning and combined with three relievers on a two-hitter. The four Washington pitchers teamed up to retire the final 11 Mets batters in order.
