New York Mets Look To Advance To NLCS With Game 4 WinIf you were to tell fans of the New York Mets that their team would be playing in an NLDS Game 4 at home with an opportunity to advance to their first NLCS in nine years back in March, they’d tell you to put the drink down and quickly walk away.

Now, they’re still struggling to fully take in this realization: That their Mets are just one win away from an even grander stage.

Still though, New York has work to do, and it will be youngster Steven Matz who takes the ball from Terry Collins in this pivotal Game 4.

He’ll oppose three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw. This means the Mets right-handed lineup will be in effect (with Juan Lagares instead of Michael Cuddyer).

For the Dodgers, Don Mattingly will turn to Yasiel Puig and insert him into the starting lineup for the first time this series.

First pitch comes your way from a frenzied Citi Field at 8:07 PM ET.
