The Mets will attempt to sweep their current four-game series over the Cubs Thursday night in front of their home fans.
Another day, another Mets win.
The Amazins are hot right now and have won six of their last seven games, including each of the first three of this current four-game set with the Cubs.
Jacob deGrom exited Wednesday night’s start after striking out eight batters through three perfect innings (and knocking in his sixth run of the year). The Mets ace was dealing with shoulder soreness but noted he’s “pretty confident that this is nothing,” per Jesse Rogers of ESPN.
Behind a pair of RBIs from both Dom Smith and Kevin Pillar, the Mets notched a 6-3 victory at Citi Field and will look to record the four-game sweep Thursday night. Marcus Stroman takes the mound for New York.
