Mets (30-23) Vs. Cardinals (27-26) Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

Things just seem to be going perfect for the New York Mets lately. Not only did the Mets snap a 50-year no-hitter curse but on Sunday at 8:05 p.m. ET on ESPN, New York (30-23) is on the brink of taking a 3-0 lead in the four-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals at Citi Field.

To do so, the Mets will need a strong effort from rookie pitcher Jon Niese (3-2), who struggled in his last outing Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies going just five innings after allowing four runs on two hits and five walks.

Meanwhile, Westbrook has been struggling as well, as he's allowed 19 runs in his last 20 innings.
