The 111th World Series features a historic matchup: Did you know this is the first time two expansion franchises have met in the Fall Classic? That’s right, each of the previous 110 series included at least one of baseball’s original 16 franchises. Pretty remarkable, huh? Not that the Mets and Royals don’t have plenty of…

THIS WEEK’S DEBATE: Does the Mets’ successful use of Matt Harvey this postseason make you view the Nationals’ shutdown of Stephen Strasburg in 2012 any differently? MARK ZUCKERMAN: No. I know it’s trendy to bring up the Strasburg shutdown again now because the Mets have taken the complete opposite approach with Harvey and now are…

GAME IN A NUTSHELL: The Nationals’ season officially came to an end Sunday afternoon in the same ballpark where it unofficially turned two months ago. Ever since suffering a 3-game sweep at Citi Field right after the July 31 trade deadline, this team found itself playing catch-up, ultimately unable to do that to the eventual…

NEW YORK — And so we have reached final day of what proved to be perhaps the most eventful season in Nationals. Certainly not the most successful, but probably the most eventful. And there’s still more than could happen before this day and this season are officially over. Bryce Harper enters Game 162 in a…

NEW YORK — Wilmer Difo fractured a bone in his hand diving into first base Saturday night, an unfortunate and abrupt end to the rookie’s first career start for the Nationals. Difo suffered a fracture of the fourth metacarpal bone in his left hand, the club announced following Saturday’s 2-0 victory over the Mets. Recovery…

NEW YORK — Any no-hitter is special, even in this age when they seem to happen on a somewhat regular basis. But some no-hitters stand out from the rest of the pack, and Max Scherzer’s gem Saturday night at Citi Field certainly fits the bill. By any number of measurements, Scherzer just authored one of…

Updated at 12:10 a.m. NEW YORK — In a perfect world, Max Scherzer would have done this either of the two previous times he faced the Mets, either on July 31 here at Citi Field or on Labor Day at Nationals Park. Those series were turning points in the Nationals’ season and played major roles…
Oct 3, 2015, 6:00 PM EST
NEW YORK — The prospect of a Max Scherzer-Matt Harvey showdown in Game 161 of a pennant race sure sounded like something to get excited about. That was, until the Mets clinched the NL East a week ago, rendering this matchup tonight pretty meaningless. Actually, given how many regulars are sitting after playing in this…

NEW YORK — Bryce Harper will not be in the Nationals’ lineup for the second half of their day-night doubleheader after taking a 97-mph fastball to his left shin in the opener against the Mets. Harper was struck in his back leg by Noah Syndergaard’s sixth-inning pitch, falling to the ground in pain. He managed…

GAME IN A NUTSHELL: On a raw, wet, windy Saturday afternoon at Citi Field, the Nationals gathered for the opener of a day-night doubleheader in advance of Sunday’s season finale, with very little still on the line. They still managed to show up and give a strong performance, riding Gio Gonzalez’s six innings of scoreless…

NEW YORK — OK, let’s try this again. After nonstop rain pelted the city all day and all night, conditions are supposed to clear up this afternoon before the Nationals and Mets take the field the first half of a day-night doubleheader.
