With their win on Wednesday, the Mets ended the season with a 12-7 record against the Nationals, tying the 2006 and 2008 clubs for the most wins against their division rival since they moved to Washington for the 2005 season.
As a team, they posted a .799 OPS against the Nationals, with most every non-pitcher doing well. Shoot, even Luis Guillorme put up a 1.162 OPS against the Nats. The redundant CF tandem of Keon Broxton (.607) and Juan Lagares (.563) were the exceptions.
The pitchers amassed a 4.72 ERA versus Washington, above their season mark of 4.38 but beneath their 5.16 ledger against teams over .500 this year. Noah Syndergaard (2.65) and Jake deGrom (1.88) did very well but the starter who did the best was Steven Matz, who put up a 0.82 ERA, allowing just 1 ER in 11 IP. Zack Wheeler (6.83) continued his career-long trend of poor pitching against the Nats while Jeurys Familia (8.68) allowed 9 ER in 9.1 IP.
The Mets are now 34-32 against the NL East, with three games remaining against both the Phillies and Braves, and four left against the Marlins.
