Mets eliminated from playoffs, then swept by Nats in DH

WASHINGTON (AP) The New York Mets were eliminated from playoff contention in a mistake-filled loss to the Nationals in the opener of a doubleheader on Saturday, and not much changed in the nightcap as an error extended a big inning for Washington, which won 5-3 to sweep the twinbill.

Entering Saturday, the Mets (26-33) needed to win their three remaining games and receive help from multiple teams to sneak into the final wild-card spot in the expanded playoffs. Instead, New York is in danger of finishing tied with Washington (25-34) in the NL East cellar.

"I wish we had 100 more" games, Mets star Pete Alonso said. "I feel like this team is built to win. We have a ridiculous amount of talent. It's unfortunate we couldn't put it together in a 60-game timespan. We had a lot of talent and we just didn't do it."
