The Mets have dropped into a tie for 3rd place in the NL East with the Marlins, 7.5 games behind the Braves, and 3 games behind 2nd place Phillies. In regards to the wild card race, the Mets are tied for 6th, 5.5 games behind the Giants.
For the line-up that will face All-Star RHP Adam Wainwright (click for the scouting report), head over to Citislickers.com.
Jose Reyes, SS
Luis Castillo, 2B
Angel Pagan, LF (Bay out with a concussion. Awesome. More to come later.)
David Wright, 3B
Carlos Beltran, CF
Ike Davis, 1B
Jeff Francoeur, RF
Josh Thole, C
Jonathon Niese, P
My prediction: Without seeing the line-up, I don't think it will matter, as the Mets are going to be dominated by Wainwright. Niese throws well once again, but it's not enough; Mets lose 2-0.
