Result: Loss

The red hot New York Mets enter this contest on an eight-game winning streak, and here they'll face a shorthanded Pittsburgh team that has lost 10 of its last 11 and has been hit hard by suspensions following a benches-clearing brawl in Tuesday's matchup with the Cincinnati Reds.

Additionally, we can note that Mets' left-hander Steven Matz (6-6, 4.32 ERA) fanned seven in a complete-game shutout against the Pirates on Saturday to improve to 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA in four career starts against the club. Pirates' righty Trevor Williams (3-4, 4.87 ERA) was charged with the L in that matchup and the Pirates have lost each of his last three starts.

Pirates are 0-6 in their last 6 games vs. a left-handed starter. Mets are 6-0 in their last 6 games vs. a right-handed starter.
