New York Mets

After sweeping the Washington Nationals and finding themselves shared for the NL East lead, the New York Mets head to Miami for three games.

What a week the New York Mets have put fans through.

First, it seemed as though they nabbed Carlos Gomez, only to have it snatched from them. Then, they blew a game against the San Diego Padres in the rain that could’ve defined a season.

It was all a gloomy narrative for what was to follow: the acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes and the sweep of the Washington Nationals.


For an encore, the first place Mets will send Bartolo Colon (9-10, 4.96 ERA) to the mound to oppose Tim Koehler (8-7, 3.38 ERA) and the Marlins in Miami.

Mets first-baseman Lucas Duda will look to continue his recent power surge. Over the last eight games, he’s homered an incredible nine times.

Coupled with how dominating Noah Syndergaard’s been, it’s no wonder New York has won six of their last 10 games. Both Syndergaard and Duda were recognized by baseball as players of the week.

First pitch is slated for 7:10 PM ET.
