After last night's game, the Mets have surrendered 9 or more runs three games in a row. That's only the fifth time since the early 1960s that the Mets have done that. The Mets gave up nine or more three times in a row just once in the 1970s, just once in the 1980s, never in the 1990s, once in 2001 and now they've done it twice in the last ten games!
Surrendering nine in three straight during a single series, as the Mets just did in the Nationals series, is something the Mets have not done since losing three straight at Shea to the Astros in 1973 by scores of 9-2, 9-4 and 14-8. The Mets went to the World Series that season.
