New York Mets Suffered a Heartbreaking Loss Against The Washington Nationals 4-3
The New York Mets suffered a heartbreaking loss against the Washington Nationals 4-3 and blown an opportunity to get close to first place in the National American League East.
The Mets secured a big win tuesday night against the Nats 7-2 under Jacob DeGrom’s performance, but loss in a way that bad teams do. They had lead going into the 8th inning and loss it with the Nats scoring three runs. Manager Terry Collins blames the loss on himself.
“That’s on me,” said Collins according to CBS, who thought his closer wasn’t quite ready. “I could’ve let Jeurys get looser. I could’ve delayed the game a little bit.”
Although there have been some questionable decisions throughout the season on Collins, this one can make the difference on them missing or making the playoffs. He doesn’t blame the loss on Reliever Bobby Parnell, who has been pitching well recently.
“It’s not on Bobby,” Collins said. “He’s been throwing the ball great.”
Mets have a lot of games left. They have the chance to make the playoffs and losses like this can’t prevent that, but would make the team mentally tougher.
