The Mets (21-25) will now set their sights on the Arizona Diamondbacks (18-31), who visit Citi Field this weekend to kick off a three game series. First pitch for tonight's game is scheduled for 7:10 pm.

The Mets will send right hander Bartolo Colon (3-5, 5.34 ERA) to the mound tonight. Colon was outstanding in his last start, allowing two runs over eight innings to pick up a win against the Washington Nationals. Arizona will counter with rookie right hander Chase Anderson (2-0, 5.06 ERA), who is making his third career start. Anderson gave up five runs over 5.1 innings his last time out, but picked up a win when the Diamondbacks beat the Dodgers 18-7 last Saturday.
