The Mets play the second game of their two-game series against the Dodgers at Citi Field on Wednesday at 7:10 PM.

Jacob deGrom (0-1, 1.29 ERA) will make his second start for the Mets and will be opposed by Hyun-Jin Ryu (3-2, 3.00 ERA) for the Dodgers. deGrom went 7.0 innings and allowed one run, with six strikeouts on May 15 vs. the Yankees in his major league debut.

Juan Lagares, who with family in the Dominican Republic to mourn a death in his family, is back with the team and batting leadoff.

Starting Lineup

  1. Juan Lagares – CF
  2. Daniel Murphy – 2B
  3. David Wright – 3B
  4. Chris Young – LF
  5. Curtis Granderson – RF
  6. Eric Campbell – 1B
  7. Wilmer Flores – SS
  8. Anthony Recker – C
  9. Jacob deGrom – RHP

Last night came down to missed opportunities, and the Mets look to reverse that with their second game against the Dodgers tonight. Yesterday, the pitching was off allowing 9 runs, and the Mets bats continuously left the bases loaded. Tonight deGrom looks to follow up his strong major league debut and the bats look to follow through against Ryu.

In deGrom’s first start he allowed one earned run and four hits over 7.0 innings, walking 2 and striking out 6. For Jacob, his major league debut was marred by a Mets offense that just couldn’t score any runs. Tonight will (obviously) be his first start against the Dodgers.

Ryu is 3-2 on the season over 7 starts and 39.0 innings with a 3.00 ERA. Ryu is coming off of the DL today and his worst start of the season. He ended April with 5.0 innings allowing 5 earned runs, 6 total. Outside of another start where he allowed 8 runs,6 earned over 2 innings, he has been fantastic allowing 2 runs in one start and shutting out opponents 4 times. Last year he faced the Mets twice totaling 14.0 innings and 2 ER. The Mets have the following numbers against Ryu:

  • Murphy 2-6
  • Lagares 1-4, HR
  • Duda 1-3
  • Recker 0-3
  • Tejada 0-2
  • Wright 0-1
  • E Young 0-3

Lets Go Mets!
