After a tough 5-4 walkoff loss Friday night, the New York Mets (52-61) will look to even their series with the Arizona Diamondbacks (59-55) Saturday evening at Chase Field. First pitch is scheduled for 8:10 PM (EST)

Mets Starting Lineup

  1. LF Eric Young Jr.
  2. CF Juan Lagares
  3. 2B Daniel Murphy
  4. RF Marlon Byrd
  5. 1B Ike Davis
  6. 3B Wilmer Flores
  7. C John Buck

  9. SP Zack Wheeler

Zack Wheeler (4-2, 3.91) is coming off a tough outing in which he was charged with four runs on seven hits and walked five in just five innings against Kansas City on August 4. Wheeler will need to cut down on his 4.97 walks/9 IP and be more efficient with his pitches as we move through the second half of the season.

Brandon McCarthy (2-5, 4.94) will take the mound for Arizona for just his second start after missing all of June and July with a shoulder injury. McCarthy went 4.1 innings allowing 2 runs on five hits while walking three in a 4-0 loss to Boston on August 4.
