Game 36: Brewers at Mets on SNY at 7 pm ETThe Mets are 6-13 at Citi Field against the Brewers. The last time New York won the season series between the two clubs was in 2008. Meanwhile, the Mets have lost a season-high four games in a row, after having been swept by the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
The Mets are 13-3 at home this season, which the second-best start through 16 home games in team history.
Bartolo Colon (6-1, 3.30 ERA) will start for the Mets against Brewers RHP Kyle Lohse (2-4, 7.03 ERA).
Colon is tied for the Major League lead with six wins. He is looking to become the majors first seven game winner. Colon has a streak of 40 1/3 innings pitched without allowing a walk, leaving him 7 1/3 shy of matching Bret Saberhagen's franchise record from 1994. His strikeout-to-walk ratio of 40-to-1 is the best in modern (since 1900) major league history during a pitcher’s first seven starts of a season.
Lohse is 0-4 with a 6.08 ERA in his seven career starts on the road against the Mets. Curtis Granderson is batting .471 with two HR in 17 at bats against Lohse.
The Mets have scored three runs or less in 12 of their last 16 games.
Juan Lagares makes his return tonight after missing the past three games due to a strain under his right armpit.
Mets C Johnny Monell is making his first big-league start. The Bronx-born Monell is the 38th player born in New York City to play for the Mets.
Daniel Murphy is hitting .349 (15-43) with four RBI in 12 games this month after hitting .198 (16-81) with 14 RBI in 23 games in April. He is the second-hardest batter to strikeout in the majors this year.
Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez is making his first start in a week after sitting out due to back stiffness.
