Preview:

The New York Mets continue to be abysmal at the plate, but David Wright is providing some faint hope.

Bartolo Colon is doing more than that on the mound.

With Wright trying to show some offensive consistency, Colon looks to continue his sterling stretch by helping the Mets avoid a sweep in this three-game series with the surging St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.

New York (31-40) has spiraled to the bottom of the NL East, dropping 11 of 14 games with the offense batting .210 -- including .149 with runners in scoring position -- and scoring 2.9 runs per contest.

They went 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position while falling 5-2 to St. Louis (39-32) on Tuesday, but Wright hit a homer -- his first since May 28 -- and added a double. The All-Star third baseman is batting .106 in 14 games, fueling speculation he could be dropped from the No. 3 spot in the order.

Wright is 11 for 28 (.393) over his last seven games in St. Louis.

Unlike Wright, Colon (6-5, 4.15 ERA) has been superb of late. The 40-year-old right-hander is 4-0 with a 1.78 ERA over his past five starts after going 1-4 with a 7.18 ERA in his previous six.

He was impressive again Friday, allowing two runs and four hits with seven strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings of a 6-2 win over San Diego.

Colon has won his last two starts against the Cardinals, allowing two runs in 15 innings.

Another strong performance may be needed since New York has a .215 average while dropping 11 of 17 at St. Louis.
That success over the Mets is part of the Cardinals' 22-3 home record against NL East opponents over the past two years, including 7-1 in 2014 thanks to a 1.75 ERA.

This entire 10-game homestand comes against East teams, and they've won the first five against Washington and New York with a four-game set versus Philadelphia to follow.

Lance Lynn (7-4, 3.16) takes the ball looking to win back-to-back starts for the first time since winning his first four of the season. The right-hander is 3-4 with a 3.06 ERA in 10 games since.

He was outstanding in Friday's 1-0 win over Washington, striking out eight while yielding two hits in eight innings opposite Jordan Zimmermann's three-hitter. That was a dramatic improvement after Lynn allowed nine runs in 8 1/3 innings while losing his previous two starts.

Lynn has lost two of three starts against the Mets behind a 3.50 ERA. However, he earned a 6-3 win in his only home start on May 13, 2013, allowing three runs with seven strikeouts and five walks in seven innings.

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!
