1authorrob3 - New York Mets Celebrate Harvey Day At Citi Field Tonight; Wright Resumes RehabWith their latest triumph, a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies (47-63) last night, the New York Mets (60-52) will look to snatch up their second straight tonight at Citi Field.

Most will love their chances with Matt Harvey (10-7, 2.76 ERA) heading to the hill opposing Chris Rusin (3-4, 4.66 ERA).

The lineup looks a little different tonight with the Rockies throwing out a lefty at them. Curtis Granderson and Lucas Duda will both take a seat with Juan Lagares leading off and playing center-field.

Meanwhile, captain David Wright who’s coming off a 1-for-3 night with Port St. Lucie yesterday, will take the next step in his rehab stint and play third-base on Tuesday.

First pitch from Queens is slated for 7:10 PM ET.
