Nationals Power Up, Continue to Dominate Mets at Citi Field

While out of town, the Nationals have made themselves at home at Citi Field. Following their 7-1 victory Tuesday, the Nationals have now won 23 of their last 27 games in Flushing Meadows, including nine straight (the longest of any Mets opponent).

The dominance does not end there for Washington. Bryce Harper, Anthony Rendon, Ian Desmond and Michael Taylor (making his MLB debut) all hit home runs, the fifth time Washington has hit at least four home runs in a game at Citi Field, all of which have come in the past two seasons.

Meanwhile, the Mets themselves have only five such games of their own at home since the park opened in 2009.

Rendon, Desmond and Taylor all went yard in the sixth inning, the first time the Nationals have hit three homers in an inning in nearly two years (Sept. 5, 2012).

Also, during that aforementioned nine-game winning streak at Citi Field, the Nationals have outscored the Mets 67-18.

That's what we call domination.
