TV: SNY Radio: WFAN
What to watch: The Mets arrive in Pittsburgh coming off a big series win in Milwaukee. That isn’t easy to do. The Brewers have been nearly unbeatable at home this season. The Pirates have won three series in a row from the Mets, Phillies, and D-Backs.
Morton has been pitching really well for the Pirates. He hasn’t allowed more than 2 runs in his last five starts. The Pirates are 6-5 in his 11 starts this year.
The Mets are 8-0 in Gee’s starts this year. He was fantastic in his last start against the Braves at home throwing 7 shutout innings and getting his sixth straight win.
Jason Bay will ride the pine again for the second straight game in an attempt to get his swing together.
