The Mets (50-55, 11.0 GB in NL East) take on the Chicago White Sox (46-57, 17.0 GB in AL Central) at Guaranteed Rate Field Tuesday at 8:10 p.m. in the first of a three-game series.
The Mets are currently on a four-game winning streak, tied for their longest of the season... Michael Conforto hit his 20th home run of the season Sunday. He now has three straight 20-homer seasons and is eight away from reaching his career high... Seth Lugo retired all four batters he faced in relief on Sunday and has thrown 12 straight innings of scoreless relief over his last 11 appearances. He's allowed just three hits, a walk and a hit batsman in that time. After a 2-for-3 game Sunday, J.D. Davis has his batting average over .300 for the first time this season and will remain in the lineup on Monday.

Who is starting for the Mets?
RHP Noah Syndergaard (7-5, 4.33 ERA), who takes the mound with his future as a Met still very much up in the air. He threw seven innings innings in his last time out, allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits, but issued a season-high five walks in a loss to the Padres. Syndergaard's only career appearance against the White Sox came in 2016, when he tossed an inning of scoreless relief. To this date, it's the only regular season relief appearance of Syndergaard's career.
Who is starting for the White Sox?
RHP Reynaldo Lopez (5-9, 5.52 ERA), who has rebounded nicely after the All-Star break following a rough first half of the season. He's 1-1 in three starts in the second half, but has allowed just four runs over 21 innings, striking out 25 and walking just four.
The Mets and White Sox return to action on the South Side of Chicago Wednesday at 8:10 p.m. when Jacob deGrom (6-7, 2.86 ERA) takes on Lucas Giolito (11-5, 3.52 ERA)
