Howie Kendrick's grand slam blew Dave Roberts' bullpen mismanagement up into neon Wednesday night.
As in, the sixth in Nats Park Sunday night. When the Nats' starters-as-relievers script got trashed.
That was then: Dave Martinez a dead duck in May. This is now: he looks like Casey Stengel.
The Mets can't always win at the last minutes. The Nats can't always lose there, either. Both need to remember that now.
The Nats continue learning the hard way that these Mets can beat you the hard way easily enough.
A sweep by the Mets may have written Nats manager Dave Martinez's execution orders. May.
Mickey Callaway didn't bring Edwin Diaz in to try for a four-out save Thursday. Carlos Gomez bailed the skipper and the Mets out.
