Mets vs Nationals - Lineup for Wednesday Night Baseball

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

What a month for Arizona 3B Jake Lamb. Just hit one over CF fence. Nine homers in June, looks like 30-100 guy.

Terry Collins acknowledged the Mets need to win on Wednesday night and avoid a sweep in D.C. He noted it would put a better taste in the team's mouth after a subpar road trip. It would mean trailing by four games instead of six games. And, Collins noted, the Mets will return home to face the Cubs for four games. And that will be no picnic.

Curtis Granderson will get his right calf wrapped and do some exercising pregame to allow the Mets to gauge whether he will be in the lineup on Wednesday night. Granderson has success against Max Scherzer, so the preference is he plays, as long as he is physically able. Otherwise, Brandon Nimmo and Alejandro De Aza would man the corner outfield spots.

Cubs rookie C Willson Contreras is 2 for 2 throwing out runners in 4 starts while veteran Miguel Montero is 2 for 37 in 36 starts this season. Contreras has a cannon for an arm.

David Price's self-assessment after 4-0 loss to the Rays: "Bad. Again." Wasn't happy with his changeup or curveball. "It's crushing me right now," he said. "I'll take the blame."

Hanley Ramirez's right side did, in fact, tighten up after that big swing in the sixth inning. Day-to-day, according to manager John Farrell.

Also a neat stat regarding Tigers' Miguel Cabrera's fourth-inning home run, which was calculated at 451 feet. That's his fourth homer of 450 feet or more. According to ESPN Stats and Info, no other player in the majors has more than two homers of more than 450 feet.
