Yesterdays don’t count anymore, you just learn from them and move forward. Okay, yesterday’s W/L count in the standings, but you still must move forward because you cannot change the results. Carpe diem novum translates to: Seize the new day! Part of what happened yesterday defies logic, and that is baseball. We will see if manager Dave Martinez can once again turn his team around from a dark moment. These 2019 Washington Nationals have picked themselves up from the canvas after they were knocked down, and that is a sign of a great team. The standings still say the Washington Nationals have the top spot in the Wild Card race. That is the good news. The Nationals still control their own destiny. Win today.
The Nationals send Patrick Corbin to the mound to face the right-handed Noah Syndergaard of the Mets. It is another matchup of top of the rotation pitchers. Both teams have faced these starting pitchers before. There is certainly a familiarity with the pitchers and the players.
Now we play the game.
