Mets Vs. Nationals Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

For the first time in over two weeks, youngster Jeremy Hefner will take the mound Sunday for the New York Mets, as the team is set to conclude a three-game series at the Washington Nationals (1:35 p.m. ET on WPIX). Hefner (2-4) will oppose the Nats' Gio Gonzalez (15-6) and will try and help the Mets earn a series victory after the two NL East foes split the first two games.

Hefner's start is a part of a new six-man pitching rotation the Mets are implementing.

Meanwhile, Gonzalez is looking to become the first Nationals pitcher to reach the 16-win mark since the franchise moved from Montreal to the nation's capital.
