The Mets will be going after their fifth straight victory tonight against the Miami Marlins. Not once last season did the Mets win five in a row, and only three times did they win as many as four straight games. Their last five-game winning streak was May 26-30, 2013.
The Mets were 11-8 against the Marlins last season, including 6-3 at Citi Field.
Here is the Mets’ batting order tonight:
Lucas Duda, 1B
Michael Cuddyer, LF
Daniel Murphy, 2B
Eric Campbell, 3B
Juan Lagares, CF
Wilmer Flores, SS
Dillon Gee, RHP
Gee is coming off a 5-3 loss in last Saturday’s 5-3 loss at Atlanta. He has worked at least five innings in his last six starts against Miami, going 3-1 with a 2.84 ERA.
