LEADING OFF: Mets-Nats back after wild game, Springer hurt

SHAKE IT OFF

The Mets and Nationals are set for a matinee in Washington after playing a wild one Tuesday night. The Mets scored five runs in the top of the ninth to lead 10-4 before the Nats rallied all the way back in the bottom of the inning, capping the rally with a three-run, game-ending homer from Kurt Suzuki. The Nationals/Expos franchise had never won a game after trailing by at least six runs in the ninth or later.

“That’s hard to do even in a Little League game,” said dejected Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo.

Right-hander Zack Wheeler (9-7, 4.41 ERA), who is 0-2 with a 7.94 ERA in four starts against Washington this season, is set to start for New York. He’ll face righty Anibal Sanchez (8-6, 3.80).

So, the bullpens gave up a combined twelve runs in the ninth inning- and the solution is relying more on relievers?

One brother hit his first MLB homer. The other got called up. On the same exact day

And now, something from the lighter side of sports.

NEW YORK — Talk about an unforgettable day for the Heineman family.

Texas Rangers outfielder Scott Heineman hit his first career major-league home run on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium — the same exact day his brother, Tyler, earned his first career major-league call-up from the Miami Marlins.

“It was pretty special,” Scott said after the Rangers lost 10-1 to the New York Yankees. “And it was funny, going into the at-bat ‘Rougie’ [Rougned Odor] was all over me. He’s like, ‘You beat your brother to the big leagues, but are you going to beat him to a home run? Don’t let him beat you.’ So it was cool to get it out of the way.”

Scott’s parents, Steve and Kathy, both grew up in New York. Steve was a Mets fan, though he did take his sons to old Yankee Stadium.
