The Mets take on the Cubs in a four-game series at Citi Field after taking two out of three against San Diego this past weekend.
Following a three-game win streak that included a victory over the Orioles and two straight victories over the Padres, the Mets returned to the loss column Sunday afternoon. Thanks in part to a Fernando Tatis Jr. grand slam, San Diego avoided the sweep and defeated the Mets 7-3 at Citi Field.
But Monday is a new day and also commences a new series. The Mets will face the Chicago Cubs in the first of a four-game set in Queens.
David Peterson takes the mound for the Amazins. If he struggles yet again, could he be sent down to the minors following this start?
