The series between the New York Mets and San Francisco Giants has been an interesting one so far. The Giants (59-51) drew first blood with a 5-1 win on Friday night, while the Mets (53-57) won behind a strong performance from Jacob deGrom last night. The four game series is tied at one game a piece, making this afternoon's contest an important one as both teams look to secure at least a series split. First pitch at Citi Field is scheduled for 1:10 pm.
The Mets will send veteran right hander Bartolo Colon (10-8, 3.88 ERA) to the mound. Colon is looking to win his third consecutive start after holding the Philadelphia Phillies to only one run in 7.2 innings of work on Monday. The Giants will counter with talented young lefty Madison Bumgarner (12-8, 3.41 ERA). Bumgarner is coming off a rough outing, having allowed five runs in only four innings to lose to the Pittsburgh Pirates last Monday.
New York Mets Lineup:
- RF Curtis Granderson
- SS Ruben Tejada
- 3B David Wright
- 1B Eric Campbell
- LF Chris Young
- CF Juan Lagares
- 2B Wilmer Flores
- C Anthony Recker
- SP Bartolo Colon
- The Mets go righty heavy against Bumgarner, with Curtis Granderson as y he only left handed bat in the lineup.
- The Giants beat Colon in San Francisco on June 7th. Colon went 5.2 innings in that contest and allowed three runs, although only one was earned.
- The Mets can secure a second consecutive winning homestand with a victory this afternoon.
