A familiar face comes back to Citi Field in a new uniform. Can the Mets get one win in the series?

After sweeping the Nationals in a three-game series, the Mets are once again struggling to beat a good team. It took ten innings for the Dodgers to beat them on Saturday night, but the Mets now need to win on Sunday to avoid a sweep in the wrong direction.

The Mets have faced Max Scherzer many times during his Hall of Fame career. Sunday night’s game will be the first in which he’s wearing a Dodgers’ uniform.

After facing Julio Urias and Walker Buehler in the first two games of the series, Scherzer is just another tough matchup for the Mets. They’ll counter with Carlos Carrasco, who looks to pick up his first win of the 2021 season.
