Ex-Met Cabrera lifts Nats past former team

Before Sunday’s game against the Mets, Nationals manager Dave Martinez said his team had to be aggressive against Jacob deGrom. Washington was aggressive against the right-hander, all right. He was out of the game after throwing 101 pitches in five innings.

But deGrom didn’t figure in the decision as the Nationals defeated the Mets, 7-4, at Citi Field. Washington was able to win the finale three-game series and halt the Mets’ eight-game winning streak.
