Losers of seven of their last eight since the All-Star break, the New York Mets will look to try and salvage at least a victory in its series finale Sunday against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers (1:10 p.m. ET on TBS). The Mets have dropped the first two contests of the three-game set and are currently at the .500 mark (47-47) for just the second time this season.
Rookie pitcher Jon Niese (7-4, 3.58 ERA) will be called upon to help New York bounce back. Niese, who's is coming off a solid seven-inning, one-run performance a few days ago, will oppose Dodgers' Nathan Eovaldi (1-6, 4.33 ERA).
This will be the last time this season the Mets and Dodgers meet this season. The winner takes the season series between the two clubs.
