Stephen Strasburg passes Steve Rogers for franchise strikeout record

Hard to imagine a few weeks back, but this fervor in Flushing is making waves across the National League.

"We have all the confidence in the world right now with us", Davis said.

The New York Mets were unable to pull off another late rally on Sunday at Citi Field and fell to the Washington Nationals 7-4. He lowered his ERA to 1.97 in his last 15 starts. NY was losing 3-0 in the fourth inning Friday when Alonso (two-run homer) and Davis hit back-to-back homers to tie the game. He's slashing.289/.401/.543 with 24 home runs and 77 RBI over 108 games this season.

Nationals: Washington returns home to open a three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds on Monday.

In his 100th career at-bat, Guillorme hit his first big league home run and it couldn't have come at a better time. "I don't hit many of those. It was a great feeling".

"It's been tough", Callaway said, via SNY.

After two more Mets reached against Rodney (0-5), manager Dave Martinez went to Hudson.

Strasburg, meanwhile, entered the game with 1,619 strikeouts thanks to a gaudy 10.6 K/9 rate over 10 years (1,375 innings) in the majors.

"We're fighting to get in the playoffs, they're fighting to get in the playoffs", Martinez said. "I told the boys, 'Hey, we've got to will it tomorrow'".

The Nationals took a quick lead in the first, when Adam Eaton walked with one out, stole second and scored on Soto's two-run homer.

Seth Lugo (5-2) tossed the final two innings to earn the win for the Mets. Lugo got two outs to tie the Mets record with 26 consecutive batters retired before Soto hit a no-doubter to right field.

Alonso's toss should've hit deGrom in the chest and ended the threat, except the pitcher appeared to hesitate short of the bag. He's taking pitches that he should be taking. Soto's first-inning drive quickly quieted things down.

The Mets have won eight straight games and 15 of their past 16 dating back to July 25 to move within a half-game of the Nationals, who lead the NL wild-card race. NY took over sole possession of first place the next day and ended up reaching the World Series.

Aside from homers by Davis and Ramos, Corbin only allowed one other hit.

After Noah Syndergaard gave up two runs in the first inning, courtesy of a Juan Soto two-run bomb.

The red hot Mets saw their 8-game winning streak snapped.

Although the division is still an unlikely proposition, the Mets are only six games back of the Atlanta Braves in the loss column.

Nationals: RHP Max Scherzer (mild strain in upper back) threw a 36-pitch bullpen at almost full effort and came out feeling well.

Mets: OF Tim Tebow is expected to miss the rest of the minor league season due to a cut on his left hand.
