Who is starting for the Mets?

Marcus Stroman, who has given the Mets a quality start in each of his last two outings. He'll look to repeat that success as he faces an NL West team for the third time this season. He's 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA in his other two starts against the division this season (both games vs. Colorado).

Who is starting for the Diamondbacks?

Caleb Smith, who has a career 4.11 ERA against the Mets in seven career games, including five starts. Smith has made just one other start this season, which came back on April 3, so he won't be expected to go very long into the game.

Upcoming schedule

The Mets and Diamondbacks will play Game 3 of this series on Wednesday at 3:40 p.m.

David Peterson will go for the Mets against Madison Bumgarner.
