The New York Mets look to continue their win streak against a Washington Nationals team with something to prove.

The Washington Nationals (27-17) play host to the division rival New York Mets (25-18) beginning Monday night in a three-game set, Nation’s Capital Edition.

The Metropolitans look to continue their not-so-impressive winning streak of three games, with all three coming against the lowly and downright untalented Milwaukee Brewers.

Sure, it’s still May, and the Mets will look to win games they can win (ex. Kershaw v. Colon, adv. Dodgers.), rather than deem any specific game more important than the next. Still, everyone knows that when the NL East ‘Kings’ matchup head-to-head, you have yourself a sight to behold, with each team giving 110%.

Here we have ourselves a sight to behold: Two powerhouse teams butting heads. Unfortunately, their will be no Noah Syndergaard to go 7-scoreless with 10+ Ks, but New York is certainly capable of stealing at least two if the bats come alive once again.

The Nats took two of three from the Mets at Citi Field in the team’s initial season matchup, with 16 left to play between the two squads.
