Mets win game 100, but Braves win in NL East

Mets win game 100, but Braves win in NL East

NEW YORK – Finally, the Mets (100-61) have spent 175 days of the season in first place, nearly every day but the most important.

Despite dominating the Eastern National League almost by wire—keyword: almost—the Mets would finish second and settle for the No. 4 seed in the NL. Their consolation prize is the Wild Card series against the Padres at Citi Field on Fridays, Saturdays, and (if necessary) Sundays, which shouldn’t just be considered a party favor. The Mets’ World Championship hopes remain very much alive, even if their path to the pennant has become more difficult.

Although the Mets’ official elimination from the divisional title contest occurred at 9:50 p.m. ET on Tuesday, their actual elimination occurred last weekend, when Overwhelmed them in a decisive series of three matches in Atlanta. All the brave had to do from there was apply the finishing touches, What did they do to beat the Marlins? In Miami, which made New York’s double crackdown on citizens a subject of debate. (The Mets won their games, 4-2 And the 8-0behind Brandon NemoGreat day and three wrecks in a row to open the Night Cup).

“It’s like I told them when we left Atlanta,” said manager Buck Showalter. “Everything is still there for them.”

On Wednesday, the Mets will conclude the regular season with a Bullpen that will be meaningless in the standings, except for the fact that a win would give them their second biggest win in franchise history. This is the fourth edition of the Mets to win 100 games, following in the footsteps of the 1969 team (100-62), 86 (108-54) and 88 (100-60).

“A hundred wins is not something to turn your nose at,” said Nimmo, who won 6-for-8 with two homeowners and six RBIs in the double sweep. “It’s only been done four times here, and two of those teams are world champions. It’s good to win 100 games here. So we’re very proud of that, and we should be. But yeah, there’s definitely some disappointment coming out. Finally from the division race.”

The Mets had already been preparing for such a disappointment since Sunday, when losing three in a row to the Braves made them a heavy underdog to win the NL East race. Showalter even admitted he “knew it was a long shot,” which explains his quick action once Atlanta finally got rid of it.

What’s important is for the Mets to understand that they are still contenders for the world championship, said Showalter, even though their road to October is now much more difficult. Friday will start with a talented Padres squad that includes superstars Manny Machado and Juan Soto, as well as a dynamic trio of Yu Darvish, Blake Snell and Joe Musgrove. If the Mets survive that, their reward will be a trip to Los Angeles for the NL Division Series to take on the 110-win Dodgers, one of the best regular season teams in MLB history. A successful move can pit the Mets against the ever-dangerous Braves or Cardinals in the NL Championship Series for a shot at the pennant.

Despite their disappointments, despite the road ahead, the Mets remain confident, which 100 wins for the team will do. They’re ready to ditch the leftovers from late September and set a different tone as October approaches.

“We had an incredible year,” player Jeff McNeill He said. “A hundred wins is not easy. A lot of times, 100 wins will easily win the division. So they had to face the Braves this year, they’ve played a great baseball game. Besides that first month, they’ve played a great baseball game. You kind of have to give it to them.” But at the same time, 100 wins is exciting.”
