Aaron Harang is making his second start for the club. He pitched well over six innings in his last outing, giving up three runs on four hits with 10 strikeouts. But he couldn’t avoid the long ball, surrendering three of them in an eventual Mets loss to Washington.
The Mets dropped the series opener to the Giants last night as both starters struggled.
