    Nationals-Mets game rained out, doubleheader Tuesday

    Rain in New York and a Braves loss in Miami kept the Mets in the NL East race for at least another day. The scheduled game between the Mets and Washington Nationals was postponed Monday night by daylong showers and will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader Tuesday at Citi Field. New York (98-61) is 1 1/2 games behind first-place Atlanta in the NL East after the Braves lost 4-0 at Miami.

    Phillies top Nats, cut magic number to 1 in NL wild-card bid

    J.T. Realmuto's Phillies now need just one more victory — or one more loss by the Milwaukee Brewers — to end Philadelphia's 11-year postseason drought. Combine Sunday's victory with a 4-3 loss by the Brewers (84-75) against the Miami Marlins in 12 innings, and the Phillies hold a two-game lead for the third NL wild-card berth with three games left.
