The Miami Marlins and New York Mets will play the third game of their four game series tonight. Neither team has been completely gutted and traded elsewhere, so you can expect to see the same players take the field that have taken the field in the first two games.
The pitching matchup in this game is interesting, as Henderson Alvarez will take his 13 consecutive scoreless innings streak into this one. The Mets will counter with Jennry Mejia, a promising young arm that was quite impressive in his season debut, last time out.
