Who is starting for the Mets?
RHP Zack Wheeler (4.36 ERA/1.27 WHIP) who wants to forget about his last outing against the Braves. He allowed 12 hits, leading to five runs over five innings.
The Mets are hoping that dud was just a blip from Wheeler, who didn't allow a run in his previous two starts.
Who is starting for the Royals?
RHP Glenn Sparkman (5.45 ERA/1.44 WHIP) who took a loss despite a solid outing against the Cardinals in his last start. Sparkman allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits over six innings of work.
After finishing up this series, the Mets return home on Tuesday to face the Indians at 7:10 p.m.
