After splitting Wednesday’s doubleheader, the New York Mets look to split the series in St. Louis.
After a brutal 24 hours that saw the Mets fire their hitting coaches, scratch Jacob deGrom and subsequently get an MRI for their ace, the Mets bounced back with a split in Wednesday’s double dip in St. Louis.
The Mets lost the first game 4-1 but bounced back with a solid 7-2 win in the nightcap. The win was desperately needed.
Taijuan Walker is set to take the ball on Thursday in the matinee finale of the four-game series as the Mets look to split the series against the Central Division-leading Cardinals. The biggest question: will Francisco Lindor get a hit?
We are expecting a short delay to the start of today's game.
