The New York Mets are red-hot, having just swept the Washington Nationals at Citi Field this weekend.

The Mets are now tied with the Nationals for first place in the NL East race. Both teams have a .524 winning percentage. The Mets are 55-50 while the Nationals are 54-49.

Last night, the Mets won 5-2 behind the pitching of rookie sensation Noah Syndergaard. The righty went eight innings and struck out nine. He allowed just seven hits and two earned runs. He's now 6-5 on the season.

As good as Syndergaard looked, the best moments of the night could have come from these two guys sitting right behind home plate:

Now, if only our friend Marlins Man could get a mask and start being an umpire! Wouldn't that be great?
