Zack Wheeler (3-2, 4.35 ERA) will take the mound for the Orange & Blue this afternoon at 1:05 PM in Washington D.C., as the offense looks to break out after silent game last night.
Zack Wheeler notes:
-Only NL pitcher with 3 games of double-digit strikeouts and no more than 1 walk
-Leads majors with 0.43 HR/9 since July 24th of last season
-3rd in majors with 2.74 ERA since 7/24/18
-His 8 hits since 9/12/18 are tied for most in majors (Greinke)
The Mets will take on Anibal Sanchez (0-6, 5.27 ERA), after Nationals manager Dave Martinez made a strong push for D.C. to sign Sanchez after having a good run with the Atlanta Braves last season.
