The Good: Juan Lagares has an 11-game hitting streak, and Daniel Murphy has a ten-game hitting streak.

The Bad: Wilmer Flores is 1-for-23 over his last seven games.

The Game: Jon Niese will start for the Mets. Niese took a no-decision in his last start against the Nationals and left early due to a cramp in his leg. He allowed ten hits and two runs in 5 2/3 innings – the ten hits allowed were a season-high. Since returning from the disabled list, Niese is 3-0 with a 2.14 ERA in five starts. Niese’s only career start against Cleveland came in 2010 – he allowed three runs in seven innings for a win at Progressive Field in that start.
