The Mets and Cubs play the third game of their four-game series Sunday at Citi Field.
The game is scheduled to start at 1:10 p.m. on SNY. It can be heard on 710 WOR.
Rafael Montero (0-3, 6.12 ERA) starts for the Mets, while Jake Arrieta (6-4, 2.77) pitches for Chicago.
Update 12:40 p.m.: As expected, third baseman David Wright will sit out on Sunday. Wright, who did not speak with reporters Sunday morning, is sore after getting hit in the back of the left shoulder on a pitch from Cubs’ Dan Straily on Saturday.
Wright received a cortisone shot before the All-Star break on that same area of the shoulder with the ball hitting him in his trouble spot.
