Nationals' Sunday Afternoon Lineup vs The Mets

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Random notes on the Washington Nationals, win streaks, Nats' starter Taylor Jordan, inter-divisional records and more + the Nats' lineup for the finale of their four-game set with the New York Mets which starts at 1:35 pm EDT this afternoon in the nation's capital.

Random Notes That Lead To Posting The Lineup: The Washington Nationals have won two straight against New York going into the finale of their four-game set in D.C. The Nats have won three straight six times this season, but they've won four straight just twice. Back on July 4-7, the Nats won the finale of four-game set with Milwaukee and then three in-a-row against San Diego and back on May 4-10, they took two-straight on the road in Pittsburgh, two from Detroit in Nationals Park and the first game of three with Chicago (NL). The Nats dropped the next game to the Cubs in that series, ending their season-high five-game win streak. The Nationals go for their third straight win against the New York Mets this afternoon in the finale of their disappointing homestand in Nationals Park.

On the current 11-game homestand, the Nationals are 3-7, but they've won three of the last four and can improve to 7-5 on the year against the NL East division rivals from NY with a win today. As the Nats' game notes mention today, Washington is 19-21 against NL East foes this season, (8-6 in Nationals Park and 11-15 away from D.C.) and they have 23 of the last 36 games against divisional opponents in the nation's capital.

Taylor Jordan's on the mound for the Nationals against NY right-hander Carlos Torres, who pitched two innings in relief against the Nats earlier this season in his only career appearance against the Nats, striking out three in a 5-1 Mets' win in Nationals Park. Jordan made his MLB debut against the Mets in that same game back on June 29th in Citi Field, giving up five hits, two walks and three runs, one earned in 4 1/3 innings of work.

Here's the lineup for the Sunday afternoon matchup with the Mets:
