On September 24, the Nationals were eliminated from playoff contention, making them the 20th defending champion unable to repeat back to back titles. The Nationals finished the regular season with a record of 26–34, giving them a 4th-place finish in the NL East as a result of the Nationals' 6–4 head-to-head against the Mets, who also finished 26–34 (.433).
