Though the Mets had little reason to watch the standings heading into this weekend against the Nationals, they knew what the four-game series represented.

The teams’ uniforms might look a little different, with shades of Carolina blue on both to support prostate cancer awareness this Father’s Day weekend, but it will still be National League East rivals battling in the final matchup of a four-game series Sunday afternoon.
A baby blue cap hung from each locker in the Mets’ clubhouse, the topper of a Mets uniform with blue accents throughout.
