The NY Mets have surged back into playoff contention by winning 13 of their last 14 games — the best 14-game stretch the team has had since 1990. The Mets have an opportunity to make up even more ground starting tonight as they open a three-game set against the Washington Nationals at Citi Field. New York (59-56) trails Washington (61-53) by 2 1/2 games for the top spot in the NL wild-card standings. They’ll turn to the recently-acquired Marcus Stroman (6-7, 3.07) to make his New York debut against the Nats Stephen Strasburg (14-5, 3.72).
