Tuesday Night Pitching Matchup: Mets vs Yankees

Jason Vargas and the Mets will cap off a doubleheader in the Bronx, in what should be an exciting 2-game series against the Yankees at New Yankees Stadium at 7:05 PM.

Vargas owns a 2-3 record alongside a 3.57 ERA and 37 strikeouts over 45.1 innings and 9 games started. The crafty lefty pitched a complete game shutout his last time out against the San Francisco Giants, the shutout would go down as Vargas’ 8th of his career.

Vargas has a 1.85 ERA in his last 7 starts, allowing just 28 hits in 39.0 innings and striking out 34.

The Yankees will send James Paxton to the mound, who’s fresh off of the Injured List from problems with his left knee. The lefty is 3-2 with a 3.11 ERA and 1.17 WHIP to go alongside with 63 strikeouts in 46.1 innings pitched.
