Nationals-Mets Preview

(AP) -- For a team one day away from entering August in first place, a weekend visit to the club immediately behind it in the standings might generally be approached with a mindset of wanting to get out of town without losing any ground.

By the Washington Nationals' recent standard in New York, though, they shouldn't be happy with anything short of a sweep.

The NL East's top two teams square off Friday night with the Nationals out to double their three-game lead over the Mets.
