Here’s the lineup the Mets will use tonight in support of Jon Niese as they go for the sweep in Philadelphia and attempt to extend their winning streak to seven games:
David Wright – 3B
Kelly Johnson – 2B
Travis d’Arnaud – C
COMMENTS: It’s working, so there’s no reason to make a big deal about it, but I am curious as to why manager Terry Collins keeps hitting Cespedes second instead of third or fourth. I’m also curious as to what the batting order will look like when Lucas Duda returns. … And, with how d’Arnaud is hitting, I thought he’d hit fifth. But, I guess I like to tinker with the batting order just like Collins.
