Now Commenting On:

The Good: David Wright now has a five game hitting streak, going 8-for-20 over that span. Wright has hit .346 with four home runs and eight RBI during the month of May.

The Bad: The Mets are 5-7 in one-run games, although they're 4-1 over their last five one-run games.

The Pitching Matchups: Jeremy Hefner (0-4, 4.61 ERA) will start for the Mets. Hefner was solid in his last start against the Cardinals, taking a no-decision while allowing three runs and five hits in six innings. Over his last four starts, Hefner has pitched to a  3.33 ERA although he's 0-2 over that span. Hefner has made one relief appearance in his career against the Cubs, although today is his first start against them.

Scott Feldman (3-3, 2.53 ERA) will start for the Cubs. After struggling to an 0-3 start to his season, Feldman has been very effective over his last four starts, going 3-0 with a 1.57 ERA and is averaging over seven innings per start over that span. He allowed only a run in six innings to the Nationals in his last start, although he took a no-decision in a 2-1 win. Feldman's only career start against the Mets came in 2008 - he allowed six runs in five innings against them while with Texas in that game.
