Sunday's Mets-Rockies lineups

By Adam Rubin

DENVER -- Here are the lineups for the 2:10 p.m. ET game against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday at Coors Field as the Mets attempt to avoid getting swept in the four-game series.

Eric Young Jr. makes his first start in four games. UPDATE: E.Y. Jr. has been scratched after a baseball ricocheted off a screen and struck him below the right eye. He is headed to the hospital for X-rays.

Dillon Gee attempts to snap a streak of three straight games in which Mets starting pitchers have failed to complete five innings. Gee actually has completed six innings in 26 of his last 28 starts dating to May 30 of last season. During that span, he has the fourth-best ERA in the majors at 2.75 (minimum 175 innings), trailing only Zack Greinke (2.29), Max Scherzer (2.53) and Julio Teheran (2.66).

Jhoulys Chacin makes his 2014 debut for Colorado after opening the season on the disabled list with a shoulder strain.
