NEW YORK -- The New York Mets have come out on the other side of an epic offensive slump, albeit far too late to save their season. The San Francisco Giants are running out of time to avoid a similar fate.
The Giants will begin looking to make a last-ditch dash back into the playoff race Monday night, when they visit the Mets in the opener of a four-game series at Citi Field
Surging Mets right-hander Zack Wheeler (8-6, 3.75 ERA) will look to win his seventh straight start when he opposes his original organization. Left-hander Derek Holland (6-8, 3.83 ERA) is schedule to take the mound for the Giants.
