The Mets look to avoid getting swept on Thursday at 1:10 pm when they face the Nationals at Citi Field in the finale of their three-game series.
Zack Wheeler gets the start for the Mets in his regular season debut. He’ll be opposed by Tanner Roark for Washington. Jordan Zimmermann was scheduled to start for the Nationals, but has been scratched.
Daniel Murphy is expected to return from paternity leave prior to the game.
The game will air on SNY, and can be heard on WOR 710 AM radio.
