Steven Matz will make his second start of the spring against the Washington Nationals at First Data Field at 1:10 PM. He will be opposed by Nats top pitching prospect Erick Fedde. The game will be televised on SNY and available via radio on WOR.

Matz threw two scoreless innings with three hits allowed and a strikeout in his first Grapefruit League start on March 6 against the Miami Marlins.

RHP Erik Goeddel, LHP Tom Gorzelanny, LHP Sean Gilmartin and LHP Josh Smoker are also expected to pitch for the Mets.

Did You Know – On this day in 1962, the Mets chalk up their first victory of any kind, a 4-3 exhibition triumph over the Cardinals. Bob “Butterball” Botz is the winning pitcher, and Choo Choo Coleman belts a home run.
