What will happen on Friday in Washington?

The Mets travel to the nation’s capital to commence an eight-game road trip and are…hot?

In the midst of a “thumbs down” type of second half, the Mets have won five straight and sit 5.0 games back of the first-place Braves.

Luckily, this road trip exclusively encompasses games against the fourth-place Nationals and last-place Marlins, which could be great for a Mets team in desperate need of a run.

Many are unconfident and believe this season is a wash, but could the Amazins change the minds of those fans with a productive stint away from Queens?
