Nationals-Mets Preview

(AP) -- A Hollywood ending to Max Scherzer's season has the New York Mets beginning the playoffs in Los Angeles.

Having lost five straight after Scherzer's second no-hitter of 2015, the reeling Mets hope to get their sagging offense on track in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Washington Nationals.

Scherzer's 17-strikeout, near-perfect game finished off a doubleheader sweep Saturday that ensured New York (89-72) will begin the NLDS on the road Friday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Mets' lone base runner came on a throwing error by third baseman Yunel Escobar in the sixth inning of the Nationals' 2-0 win.
