The Mets begin a four-game home stand with the Pirates on Monday.

The New York Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates begin a four-game series Monday at Citi Field, as Jenrry Mejia (0-1) will start for the Mets and oppose the Pirates' Kyle McPherson (0-1). The series will be the last time the two teams face each other this season.

The set will feature two teams looking to close out the season strong as each have tailspined during the second half of the season. Pittsburgh (75-77), however, still has a shot at earning a postseason berth but it will need to win a string of games and get some help as they are 6 1/2 games back in the National League Wild Card race.

Meanwhile, the Mets are coming off a three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins. Still, though, the Mets have lost 11 of their last 15 games.

The Pirates snapped a five-game losing streak Sunday with a victory over the Houston Astros.

The game will be broadcast on SNY. First pitch is schedule for 7:10 p.m. ET.
