Nationals, fresh off elimination, host Mets

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals will try to earn a split of their four-game series with the New York Mets on Sunday, one day after they were officially eliminated from postseason contention.

Shortly after Saturday's game got underway, the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the San Francisco Giants to dash the Nationals' wild-card hopes. Their bid for a third straight National League East crown ended Friday night when the Atlanta Braves won and they lost.

"It stings," Nationals manager Dave Martinez said of being eliminated. "But we've still got seven more games ... these guys don't quit."
