After a quick makeup game with the Orioles, the Nationals now wrap up their homestand with a 3-game series against a Mets club they’ve beaten 12 of their last 13 meetings. They’ll be without Wilson Ramos, who was placed on the paternity leave list in anticipation of the birth of his first child. Jose Lobaton is behind the plate tonight, with Sandy Leon backing him up.

Gio Gonzalez takes the mound, trying to find some consistency after an up-and-down season. He’ll be opposed by right-hander Zack Wheeler.
