Preview:

The New York Mets (11-10) look to take the four game series  as they grinned out a 3-2 win with Michael Wacha on the mound, who struck out 10 Mets.. They will also have a hard time going against St. Louis Cardinals (12-10) starter Lance Lynn, who is 4-0.  Lynn is 1-1 with 3.86 ERA vs the Mets lifetime. The current group of Mets are batting a mer .194 (6 for 31) vs Lynn.

Only Positives: Daniel Murphy is batting .444 (4 for 9) and David Wright .286 (2 for 7) against Lynn.

The Mets will counter with veteran Bartolo Colon (1-3) who has been taken a beaten lately.  His last three starts he is 1-2 with a 5.86 ERA. The current group of Cardinals are batting .228 lifetime vs Colon. Matt Holliday is batting .600 (3 for 5 ) off Colon. Matt Carpenter is batting .500 (2 for 4).  Bartolo Colon is 2-0 with 3.75 vs the Cardinals in his career.

Bobby Abreu projected to get start in right field as it is a day game after a night game and Curtis Granderson has been struggling...

The Mets bats will have to come to life in this one for the Mets to be successful and Bartolo has too be more effective, which has not been the case of late... LGM!
