Who is starting for the Mets?
Tylor Megill, who is 7-7 in 19 starts this season with a 5.54 ERA (1.73 WHIP) to go along with 74 strikeouts in 91 innings pitched.
Facing the Atlanta Braves his last time out, Megill went 4.2 innings and took the loss after giving up three earned runs on eight hits, including two home runs, two walks and striking out five.
The right-hander has struggled this month as he owns a 6.86 ERA in 19.2 innings pitched in August and has had a problem pitching deep into games lately, getting out of the sixth inning just once in his last 10 starts.
The good news is Megill has pitched much better at Citi Field this season. In nine home starts, the 28-year-old is 5-2 with a 3.49 ERA (1.33 WHIP) and 2-5 with a 7.93 ERA (2.19 WHIP) in 10 road starts.
Who is starting for the Rangers?
Jon Gray, who is 8-7 in 23 starts this season with a 3.76 ERA (1.23 WHIP) to go along with 111 strikeouts in 131.2 innings pitched.
His last start against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Aug. 22 wasn't great as the right-hander went just four innings, allowing five earned runs on seven hits, three walks and striking out five.
However, in his second year with the Rangers, Gray has been a solid option every fifth day. He's been even better on the road than at home this season, pitching to a 3.30 ERA in 11 road games compared to a 4.17 ERA in 12 home games.
The Mets and Rangers continue their three-game series on Tuesday night at 7:10 p.m. on SNY.
