Mets Vs. Nationals Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

Well, the New York Mets are going to have to recover now knowing their perfect season is no more.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Mets and Washington Nationals will play the rubber match of their three-game series at Citi Field.

You couldn't ask for a better pitching match-up than the one taking place. Johan Santana will man the mound for New York while the Nats have Stephen Strasburg in their corner.

Santana pitched five shutout innings in his first start since 2010 on Opening Day against Atlanta. Strasburg dominated the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, going seven innings and striking out five while only allowing a single run.

The Mets won the first contest 4-3 thanks to a Daniel Murphy walk-off single. Washington came back and countered with a 6-2 win last night finally serving the Amazins' with their first defeat of the 2012 season.

New York also got the very unfortunate news last night that David Wright will be out for a while after fracturing his right pinkie. Wright was having a great start to the season, so this is just a brutal pill to swallow.

Wright will re-evaluated today and then a timetable for his injury will likely be produced.

After Wednesday, the Mets will hit the road to take on Philadelphia and Atlanta for three games apiece.

Time: 1:10 p.m. ET

TV: SNY
