The Mets will also send a call-up to the mound in right-handed Chris Schwinden. The winner of this afternoon’s game will finish the day alone in third place in the National League East. The Nationals have already exceeded their 2010 win total, winning their 70th game last night. They could finish .500 – they would have to go 11-3 in their last 14 games.

As always, talk about the game right here.
