WASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals begin their final homestand of the season Thursday night when they host the New York Mets.They’ll play seven games over seven days against the Mets and Marlins Anthony Rendon Jersey , but the stakes are much lower than in previous years. They won’t be clinching a playoff berth or setting a rotation or auditioning players for a post-season roster spot.Washington (77-75) sits seven games behind the Braves in the National League East and 6 1/2 behind the Cardinals for the second wild card. A best-case scenario would seem to be staving off mathematical elimination until they end the season with three road games in Colorado.Article continues below ...The homestand may be the last for All-Star outfielder Bryce Harper, a free-agent in the offseason.“I haven’t really thought about it,” Harper told the Washington Post. “I think it’ll really hit that last game I guess, running off the field or something like that. I’m just trying to enjoy it and see what happens.”After a rough first half, Harper enters the final 10 games hitting .247 with 34 homers and 97 RBIs. He has never driven in 100 runs.The Mets (70-82) long ago became a non-factor in 2018 and are already looking ahead to next season when they could boast arguably the best starting rotation in the East.On Wednesday, they announced they were shutting down right-hander Zack Wheeler (12-7, 3.31 ERA) for the remainder of the season, with Corey Oswalt taking his place in the rotation.Wheeler, who didn’t pitch in the majors in 2015 and 2016, had a shortened 2017. This season he’s gone 9-1 with a 1.68 ERA over his last 11 starts but has pitched almost 100 more innings than a year ago.“We’re really excited about the year he had, and we feel like we’d probably be taking the best care of him we can if we shut him down at this point,” manager Mickey Callaway told mlb.com.Left-hander Jason Vargas (6-9, 6.47 ERA) starts Thursday’s opener for the Mets.Vargas has also enjoyed a strong finish. His ERA was in double digits back in May and after an Aug. 7 loss it was 8.75 to go along with a 2-8 record. He’s given up two earned runs or fewer in five of his last six starts, including last time out when he beat the Marlins, allowing two runs over six innings.Vargas is 1-3 with a 0.83 ERA, in six games (three starts) against Washington.Right-hander Max Scherzer (17-7, 2.53 ERA) starts for Washington. Scherzer has 277 strikeouts coming in and needs eight to top his career high of 284, set in 2016. He has 16 double-digit strikeout games on the season.In his last start Daniel Murphy Jersey , Scherzer was roughed up by the Braves, giving up six runs on seven hits over four innings, his shortest start of the season as he seeks a third straight NL Cy Young Award.“I just couldn’t get into a rhythm where I knew where those balls were actually going to end up. I couldn’t control my misses,” Scherzer told the Washington Post. “I was pitching out of the stretch so much. I never found a rhythm out of the windup to be able to take it to the stretch to be able to execute clean innings.”Scherer is 9-4 with a 2.34 ERA in 16 games (15 starts) against the Mets. The Dodgers started their postseason with a bang, slugging three homers to back Hyun-Jin Ryu’s seven shutout innings. The 6-0 win gives Los Angeles a 1-0 advantage in the short series."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 2019 Spring TrainingProspectsCommentaryNews and Notes2018 NLDS: Dodgers vs BravesDodgers Game RecapsDodgers dial up long ball, shut out Braves behind Hyun-Jin RyuNew,80commentsByRyan Walton@RyanWaltonSBNOct4, 2018,8:51pm PDTShareTweetShareShareDodgers dial up long ball, shut out Braves behind Hyun-Jin RyuGary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY SportsDodgers did what they do best Thursday night, clubbing a trio of homers on their way to a 6-0 win over the Braves. The big blow came in the second inning on a majestic three-run blast from Max Muncy that landed a few rows deep into the right field pavilion.When they hit at least three homers in the regular season, the Dodgers were 27-1. It only makes sense that the offense that produced the second most home runs in baseball (235), hit three more to start the postseason.The Dodgers now have the luxury of a 1-0 lead in the series with Clayton Kershaw taking the ball in Game 2.Hyun-Jin Ryu made any fear of starting him in Game 1 over Kershaw disappear with seven shutout innings. The lefty was stingy, allowing four singles and no walks while striking out eight. By the time the Braves had strung together back-to-back singles in the fifth inning, Ryu had set down 14 of the first 15 Atlanta hitters, including 12 in a row. At 72 pitches and a pinch hitter away from turning the lineup over for the Braves, the bullpen started moving around. But before they could even take their jackets off, Ryu induced an inning-ending fly ball on the first pitch to Kurt Suzuki.The big lefty allowed just one more hit the rest of the way http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-adams-jersey , retiring seven of the last eight he faced. In 10 starts at Dodger Stadium in 2018, Ryu now owns a 1.02 ERA in 61 2鈦? innings.“(Ryu) pitched well,” said Dodger manager Dave Roberts. “He had command to both sides of the plate, command of the secondary. He was in control. There was a lot of soft contact. He was doing what he wanted to do, missing bats, the no-walk, and really competed well. It was good to see, and we needed that one.”Joc Pederson immediately gave his pitcher some support by putting the Dodgers on the board with a solo homer on the third pitch he saw, surprising nobody on his own team. The 26-year-old set a franchise record with eight leadoff homers during the regular season, passing the mark set by Davey Lopes in 1979.The Dodgers were on top of Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz from the start, knocking him from the game after two innings. After Pederson’s home run, Justin Turner doubled and Max Muncy walked. 10 pitches in and Los Angeles had a 1-0 lead and threatening for more.Two batters later, Cody Bellinger walked to load the bases for Yasiel Puig. But the Dodger right fielder swung through a 97-mph fastball to become the third strikeout victim for Foltynewicz. Despite a 28-pitch first, the deficit could’ve been much worse for the visiting team.The Braves’ right-hander looked like he had rebounded from the long first inning, getting the first two hitters in the second. However, it came off the rails again when the Dodgers went back to the top of the lineup.Foltynewicz hit Pederson on an 0-2 pitch and walked Turner to set the table for Muncy. The Dodger first baseman launched the 97-mph fastball over the wall in center to give his club a comfortable 4-0 lead.Braves’ manager Brian Snitker would only allow his starter to throw four more pitches to get out of the second inning, going to lefty Sean Newcomb for the third. Atlanta would need six pitchers to get through eight innings.Kik茅 Hernandez provided an insurance run in the sixth inning, lining a ball into the left field seats to push the lead to five. And for good measure Max Scherzer Jersey , they would tack on a run in the eighth on a David Freese pinch-hit sac fly.That was more than enough for the bullpen, who completed two scoreless innings in relief to shut the door.“We’re playing really good baseball,” said Roberts. “All of September I think we’ve all kind of come together — offensively, defensively, starting pitching, the pen — and this is when you want to play your best baseball.”“We’re healthy, and this is a very focused and determined group.”Maximum MuncyBesides crushing another dinger Thursday, Muncy also walked three times to reach base in all four plate appearances. This caused quite a comparison.Muncy even had a stolen base, which only one on this list (Murray) can claim.Up NextDodgers look to take a 2-0 lead in the series with Clayton Kershaw on the mound against right-hander Anibal Sanchez.Thursday ParticularsHome Runs: Pederson (1), Muncy (1), Hernandez (1)WP: Hyun-Jin Ryu (1-0): 7 IP, 4 hits, 8 strikeoutsLP: Mike Foltynewicz (0-1): 2 IP, 3 hits, 4 runs, 3 walks, 5 strikeouts
