The Mets come into Nationals Park having lost seven of their past 10 games, even with a three-game winning streak wedged in there. Tanner Roark will face the Mets for the second time this year. In the first meeting, Roark allowed two runs in the first inning, then fired five scoreless innings. The Nats have drubbed lefty starters this season to the tune of a .283/.337/.446 slash line, and they get a shot at one tonight in Jon Niese.
