Mets (31-23) Vs. Cardinals (27-27) Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Mets will go for the four game sweep against the St. Louis Cardinals at Citi Field on Monday afternoon.

So far, the Mets have put on a clinic in this series including of course, Johan Santana's no-hitter. New York has only yielded one run in the first three contests against the defending world champs.

Dillon Gee will be charged with keeping that level up when he takes the mound. Gee has been inconsistent this season but finding a way to get the job done more often than not. As it stands, he's 4-3 with a bloated ERA of 4.69.

Gee did pitch very well in his last outing, going 6 2/3 innings against the Philadelphia Phillies and only allowing two runs in a no-decision.

Kyle Lohse will oppose Gee for the redbirds, looking to snap his team's five game losing streak.

Lohse has been excellent this campaign to the tune of a 5-1 record with a 3.36 ERA. However he was touched up by the Atlanta Braves the last time he saw action, giving up five runs in as many innings.

One thing that could slow the Mets down is the weather, with rain looming in the forecast all day.
