The New York Mets (27-21) are back in action after a much needed day off yesterday. The day off came after 20 consecutive games, a stretch in which the Mets went 9-11. The good news for the Mets is they ended the stretch by sweeping the Phillies to enter today's game on a three game winning streak. Their next opponents are the Miami Marlins (18-30), who have already made a managerial change this season. First pitch for tonight's contest at Citi Field is scheduled for 7:10 pm.
The Mets will send righty Matt Harvey (5-2, 2.91 ERA) to the mound tonight. Harvey is looking to bounce back from the worst start of his career, in which he allowed seven runs in four innings of work against the Pittsburgh Pirates last Saturday. The Marlins will counter with veteran righty Dan Haren (4-2, 3.09 ERA). Haren took a tough no decision in his last outing despite tossing six shutout innings against the Baltimore Orioles last Saturday.
