Who is pitching for the Mets?
Peterson, who holds a 10-16 record and 3.63 ERA through three seasons in the minor leagues. Peterson reached as high as AA-Binghamton in 2019, and looks to make the final push into Triple-A and maybe even into the Mets bullpen at some point late in the season.
Who is pitching for the Nationals?
RHP Wil Crowe, who also has spent three seasons in the minor leagues and hope to make the jump into the majors soon enough. Crowe is 18-15 with a 4.69 ERA and 241 strikeouts in 57 games.
