Clayton Kershaw (2-2, 1.88) vs. Jon Niese (2-1, 3.80).
I don't mean to be gauche, but we do have a pair of lefties on the mound at Citi Field today. Kershaw is coming off his worst start of the year, having given up five runs against the lowly Padres--more runs than he had given up all year. The Dodgers' woeful offensive support can be blamed for Kershaw's mediocre W-L record; of four games this year, he's received 0, 1, 2, and 4 runs of support, the latter of which was only catalyzed after Kershaw himself hit his first career HR. Niese is also coming off an outing in which he gave up the most hits all year (nine hits, and 3 ER over 6.0 IP).
Between Niese, and the fact the Mets rank 13th in NL opponents' OBP, even our offense might have a chance. We'll need it, especially since the Mets have scored almost twice as many runs this year as the Dodgers (99 to 54). If we can just make sure our speedos don't bunch up and we give Kershaw a bit more (underwire) support (i.e., we don't go topless), we should be Nice, indeed.
