Trying to hold onto what could be considered a resurgence after some early poor play to start the second half of the season, the New York Mets will try and take Game 3 of the their four-game series Wednesday against host the San Francisco Giants (10:15 p.m. ET on SNY). Jon Niese (7-5) will take the mound for the Mets and oppose Giants ace Matt Cain (10-3).
The Mets, who're 3-3 during its current 11-game road trip, will be looking to bounce-back for a 4-1 loss to the Giants on Tuesday. New York took Game 1, 8-7, on Monday.
Niese will also be looking for some redemption of his own, as he allowed eight runs in just six innings in his last start. Meanwhile, Cain seemed almost hittable in the month of July posting just a 3.85 ERA in four starts.
Another storyline during Wednesday contest, will be the Mets facing a familiar foe in former Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Hunter Pence, who was dealt to the Giants Tuesday, before the MLB's non-waiver trade deadline expired, and will make his San Francisco debut Wednesday.
