The New York Mets (5-7) will try and forget the dredging they got in Anaheim, as they were 14-2 losers. The Diamondbacks are trying to figure out how to win (4-11) and according to reports, has skipper Kirk Gibson on the hot seat. The D-Backs Rotation has been hit with injuries (Patrick Corbin) and Randall Delgado has not performed, so Josh Collmenter who spent much of his career in the bullpen will start for them. The Mets players on the team have seen him in relief have 43 AB's and have 16 hits (.372) off him. Ike Davis has a HR off Collmenter and David Wright has 2 HR's vs Collmenter in his career.
The Mets will counter will young Zack Wheeler. He has gotten beaten up a bit in his last two starts (5.73 ERA)...In Atlanta on April 9th, he only got through 5 innings, giving up 8 hits, giving up 4 earned runs.. Wheeler (0-2) has pitched in Arizona going 1-0 with a 1.42 ERA. Six Players on the current D'Backs roster are hitting .312 combined with 1 HR vs Wheeler in their career. Aaron Hill hit the HR.
Wheeler has to improve to keep the D'Backs off the board and the Mets have to put up runs. Ike Davis looks like he might get the start.

- Eric Young Jr. - LF
- Daniel Murphy -2B
- David Wright - 3B
