Mets (10-8) Vs. Marlins (7-10) Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The Mets will look to polish off the visiting Miami Marlins for a three-game sweep on Thursday afternoon, and they'll hand the ball over to Jonathon Niese to take the mound.

Niese will be opposed by Ricky Nolasco, with each putting their 2-0 records at stake.

The Mets have pitched sensationally this series, surrendering just one run in each of the two games, while the bullpen has not allowed a single run in four and one thirds inning pitched.

The Mets have surprised many during the early portion of the 2012 season, but stand four games back of the red-hot Washington Nationals in the NL East. A sweep against Miami would be extra gratifying for New York, as their best player, Jose Reyes, signed a free agent contract with the Marlins this past offseason.

Game Time: 1:10 p.m. EST

TV Coverage: SNY
