The Mets continue their three-game series with the Padres today at Citi Field. Zack Wheeler (2-6, 4.19 ERA) starts for the Mets, opposed by Jesse Hahn (0-1, 9.82 ERA) for San Diego.
Hahn will once again be called on by the Padres today, but San Diego is hoping for better results this time out. He was pounded in his MLB debut and was forced out of the game after just 3.2 innings. He’ll be making the jump from AA and his longest start of the season in the minors is just 5.2 innings.
Wheeler wasn’t on his “A” game in his last outing, but prior to that he had strung together three straight very impressive starts. He’ll take on MLB’s lowest scoring team, the San Diego Padres, at home where he owns a 3.28 ERA this season. Wheeler currently is averaging more than a strikeout per inning this season.
