Nationals-Mets discussion thread: Game 79

Rich Lipski/AP

The Nationals are in the familiar position of trying to eek back above .500 rather fall below it. They will try to beat Matt Harvey, which only one team has done all year. Harvey enters with a 2.05 ERA, and back in April he shut down the Nationals for seven innings. Ross Detwiler has an 8.59 ERA in three starts since he returned from the disabled list. Talk about the game right here.
