Another big day for Mark Trumbo as the Orioles again lay waste to the Padres. Trumbo ... Nelson Cruz ... Edwin Encarnacion ... Victor Martinez ... Carlos Beltran ... they're all putting up big numbers, but they can't all make the All-Star team. My guess is one makes it as the second DH to David Ortiz and the others get snubbed.

Mets vs Nationals - Lineup for Wednesday Night Baseball

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Teixeira not in the lineup; we'll find out why from Joe Girardi in a few.
