KEY GAME INFORMATION
WASHINGTON: 2017 97-65, first place, lost to Cubs in NLDS
MANAGER Dave Martinez (first season)
ADDITIONS: 1B-OF Matt Adams, C Miguel Montero, RHP Jeremy Hellickson, RHP Joaquin Benoit, INF Matt Reynolds
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Dusty Baker, LF Jayson Werth, 1B-LF Adam Lind, C Jose Lobaton, RHP Matt Albers
OUTLOOK: This might be the end of an era at Nationals Park, with Harper eligible to leave as a free agent after the season and General Manager Mike Rizzo's contract set to expire, too. The team has won four NL East titles in the past six years but has zero playoff series victories to show for it. That's why yet another manager (Baker) lost his job, and yet another rookie skipper has been brought in (will Martinez have more success than Matt Williams?). Rizzo has made no secret of the need to start making postseason inroads -- a World Series is the stated goal, and that's certainly not an outrageous aim, given all the talent he's assembled. The lineup remains almost exactly the same, although Werth is gone after playing out his seven-year contract. The rotation and bullpen are also nearly identical to the way they looked at the end of 2017.
NY METS: 2017 70-92, fourth place
MANAGER Mickey Callaway (first season)
ADDITIONS: 3B Todd Frazier, RF Jay Bruce, LHP Jason Vargas, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, RHP Anthony Swarzak, LHP Matt Purke, C Jose Lobaton
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Terry Collins, LHP Josh Smoker, LHP Josh Edgin, RHP Chasen Bradford, OF Norichika Aoki, RHP Erik Goeddel, RHP Tyler Pill, LHP Tommy Milone, OF Travis Taijeron
OUTLOOK: Callaway had great success with Cleveland's arms, and the injury-plagued Mets are counting on his methods, along with new pitching coach Dave Eiland, to keep their talented but fragile rotation intact. New York also overhauled its medical department, hoping to keep star players on the field. Syndergaard and deGrom make for an imposing 1-2 punch. So if Harvey, Matz and Zack Wheeler -- even one or two of them -- can finally stay healthy and approach their initial big league form, the pitching staff could be terrific again after unraveling last year with a 5.01 ERA that ranked 28th in the majors. Vargas was signed to eat innings but will miss some time at the beginning of the season after surgery for a broken right (nonpitching) hand. All-Star outfielder Michael Conforto (27 HRs, .384 OBP, .939 OPS) is targeting a May 1 return from surgery for a dislocated left shoulder. His status is critical to a lineup that lacks speed and a natural leadoff hitter. Nimmo made strides last season and is a potential candidate for that role while platooning early with Juan Lagares to fill Conforto's spot in center field. After the Mets spent nearly $90 million to plug holes in free agency, it still might be a stretch to envision them seriously challenging star-studded Washington for NL East supremacy. But with better health in a soft division, they could certainly rejoin the wild-card hunt.
PREVIEW
Nationals hope to build on comeback against Mets
 

NEW YORK -- The Washington Nationals hope Monday night proved it's never too early in the baseball season for a turning-point game to take place. The New York Mets will take the field Tuesday night aiming to show it's never too early for a team to display its resiliency.

The Nationals and Mets will play a potentially pivotal middle game of their three-game series Tuesday night, when the teams square off at Citi Field. Visiting Washington stormed back from a five-run eighth-inning deficit to stun New York 8-6 in the opener on Monday night.

Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez (1-1, 2.20 ERA) is scheduled to oppose Mets right-hander Zack Wheeler (1-0, 1.29).

For seven innings Monday night, it appeared the Nationals (8-9) could take solace only in the fact that Gonzalez, who historically dominates the Mets, was ready to pitch Tuesday. Washington collected just four hits in the first seven innings against New York right-hander Jacob deGrom, who entered the eighth with a 6-1 lead, 12 strikeouts and just 84 pitches thrown.

But the Nationals sent 12 men to the plate against five Mets pitchers in the eighth and scored six runs via a pair of two-run singles by Bryce Harper and Wilmer Difo and two bases-loaded walks drawn by Matt Reynolds and Michael Taylor, the latter of which gave Washington the lead.

The win was just the fourth in the last 13 games for the Nationals, who would have fallen seven games behind the Mets with a loss.

"That was big, super big -- I'm not going to sit here and lie," Nationals manager Dave Martinez said afterward. "That dugout was electric."

Now the Mets (12-3) have to hope one loss didn't sap the energy they gained during a red-hot start - one that was fueled by a dominant bullpen. New York entered Monday with a major league-low 1.51 ERA in 53 2/3 innings.

But Monday's meltdown may have been the price to pay for that early success. Mets relievers are pitching an average of 3 2/3 innings per game under rookie manager Mickey Callaway, who used five relievers Monday for the second straight game, the third time in four games and the fifth time in the last nine.

"It's one inning -- it wasn't even the game it was really one inning, we outplayed them for the rest of the game," Callaway said afterward. "We didn't get the job done.

"We'll learn from it and make sure that it doesn't throw us into some kind of tailspin. Because we've been a really good team and we've been showing that."

Gonzalez took the loss in his most recent start last Thursday, when he gave up three runs (two earned) in five innings as the Nationals fell to the Colorado Rockies 5-1. Wheeler won his season debut last Wednesday, when he allowed one run in seven innings as the Mets beat the Miami Marlins 4-1.

Gonzalez is 14-5 with a 2.88 ERA in 24 career starts against the Mets. The wins are the most Gonzalez has collected against any opponent. He is particularly effective at Citi Field, where he is 10-1 with a 1.69 ERA in 15 starts.

Wheeler is 2-7 with a 4.84 ERA in 10 career starts against the Nationals, whom he has faced more than any other team.
