    NEW YORK -- The second game of the four-game series between the New York Mets and Washington Nationals will determine whether the Mets have a chance of catching the Nationals atop the National League East by the All-Star break.It might also decide the NLs starting pitcher for Tuesday nights All-Star Game.A marquee pitching matchup will take place Friday night at Citi Field, where Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard will oppose Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg. New York won the series opener Thursday, when Wilmer Flores hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in the fifth inning of the Mets wild 9-7 victory.The Nationals raced out to leads of 4-1 and 6-4, only to watch the Mets storm back both times in a game in which the teams combined to hit eight homers, the most in Citi Field history.We fought back, they fought back, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. Probably a heck of a game to watch, but a terrible game to lose.The Mets (47-38) are three games behind the Nationals (51-36) in the NL East. New York has cut Washingtons lead in half over the past eight days.With the next three games, weve got to do everything we can to get as close as we can heading into the break, Mets manager Terry Collins said. Its a big series for us.Runs should be at a premium Friday, when Syndergaard and Strasburg square off against each other for the first time. The two pitchers are a combined 20-3 with a 2.56 ERA and 246 strikeouts -- 123 apiece.While Syndergaard (9-3, 2.41 ERA) has become a cult hero in New York thanks to his long blonde hair and dry wit on social media, the stoic Strasburg (11-0, 2.71 ERA) will be the one looking to make history on Friday. If Strasburg does not lose, he will become the first starter to reach the All-Star Break with at least 10 wins and no losses since Dave McNally went 13-0 prior to the All-Star Game in 1969.Each pitcher has at least two intangibles working in his favor in the drive for the All-Star Game start. Both will obviously be available to pitch on three days rest Tuesday, which means there wont be any concerns over their ability to open the game with an inning or two.Syndergaard is the ace of the defending NL champions, which means his manager is the one leading the NL All-Star team. Strasburg, meanwhile, is from San Diego, where the All-Star Game will be played, and he played in college at San Diego State under late Padres legend Tony Gwynn.The Mets and Nationals may have some injury news to report Friday. New York right-hander Matt Harvey, who learned during an examination Thursday that he has symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome, is expected to decide by the end of the weekend if he will undergo surgery.The Nationals played a man down Thursday due to first baseman Ryan Zimmermans absence because of undisclosed soreness. Baker said the team may have to make a roster move Friday in order to get back to a full bench. Air Max 90 Womens Sale.
