The New York Mets are poised to complete a three-game sweep of the Washington Nationals on Wednesday, following two nights of bullpen drama. Mets right-hander Luis Severino (3-2, 3.52 ERA) will face Nationals left-hander Patrick Corbin (1-6, 5.83 ERA) in the series finale.

Pitching Matchup: Severino vs. Corbin

Luis Severino’s Performance
Luis Severino experienced a mixed May, alternating between high and low points in his outings. Despite some shaky starts, he finished the month strong by defeating the Atlanta Braves, giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits over 5 1/3 innings. Severino’s ability to adjust mid-game, including using energy snacks to boost his performance, showcases his resilience. His only career start against the Nationals was a gem, with Severino pitching 6 2/3 scoreless innings last August.

Patrick Corbin’s Challenges
Patrick Corbin, since his pivotal role in the Nationals’ 2019 World Series win, has struggled, with a record of 28-63 and a 5.64 ERA. Corbin is under pressure as Josiah Gray nears a return, potentially threatening his spot in the rotation. However, Trevor Williams’ recent injury might give Corbin a reprieve. Corbin’s recent outing against the Cleveland Guardians was one of his best this season, as he allowed just two runs over six innings, albeit in a loss.

Mets’ Offensive Power

Key Players
Pete Alonso continues to be a major threat against Corbin, hitting .318 with five home runs and nine RBIs in 44 at-bats. Alonso contributed one of New York’s two homers in Tuesday’s 6-3 win. Harrison Bader also went deep, and David Peterson provided a strong start with 6 2/3 effective innings. Francisco Lindor, Brandon Nimmo, Alonso, and Bader each had two hits, driving the Mets’ offensive surge.

Nationals’ Struggles

Offensive Woes
The Nationals have faced challenges at the plate, with manager Dave Martinez highlighting missed opportunities and poor pitch selection. Despite individual successes like Jacob Young’s three hits and two RBIs, and CJ Abrams’ return from a shoulder issue, the team has struggled to convert these into wins.

Managerial Insights

Carlos Mendoza’s Strategies
Mets manager Carlos Mendoza’s decisions have been crucial in the team’s recent success. His choice to let David Peterson pitch into the seventh inning was particularly impactful, providing much-needed stability to the starting rotation. Mendoza’s management of the bullpen, despite recent dramas, has kept the Mets on track for victories.

Dave Martinez’s Observations
Nationals manager Dave Martinez has noted the team’s offensive struggles, focusing on the need for better pitch selection and execution. His reflections on the team’s performance underscore the challenges the Nationals face as they try to improve their standing.


As the Mets aim for a series sweep, the performance of Severino and the continued offensive contributions from key players will be pivotal. For the Nationals, finding consistency and capitalizing on opportunities will be crucial to avoid a sweep. With both teams eager for a win, the game promises to be an exciting finale to the series.
