Dan Haren (8-11, 4.66 ERA) will take the mound to face the Mets. Despite a loss, the Nationals are still 6 1/2 games behind the Cincinnati Reds for the second wild-card spot. The Nationals will face Zack Wheeler (6-3, 3.42 ERA) for the second time this season. They hung five runs on him earlier this season. The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game here.
