Zack Greinke (12-8, 2.75) vs. Jacob deGrom (6-5, 2.87).
It's Pups at the Park day at Dodger Stadium! (And it's sold out, by the way.) The annual bring-your-dog-to-the-ballpark event (formerly known as Bark in the Park and probably renamed due to a change in sponsors) falls after a game in which the Mets turned in a pooch of a performance, helping Dan Haren and the Dodgers win Game 1 of the series.
DeGrom is coming off the DL to make his first start since August 7. He's recovering from right rotator cuff tendinitis, so expect Terry Collins to have him to be on a short leash tonight. Ha! I feel like such a heel for making that pun. Oh well, paws well that ends well.
