The Cubs swept the season series against the Mets this year, but both teams have gotten a lot better since their last meeting.
Jon Lester has had a nice season against the Mets. Pitching in two games, he is 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA while striking out 13 and walking 5. Mets hitters this year are hitting .204 this year against Lester.
Matt Harvey pitched one game against the Cubs this year and he was fantastic. 7 shutout innings allowed 3 hits while striking out 9 and walking 2.
Hopefully, the Cubs’ offense can figure out Harvey the second time facing him. Cubs vs Mets tonight at 7:07 pm CT.
