Today's Nats-Mets lineups

FLUSHING, N.Y. - It'll be the 10-win Stephen Strasburg against the one-win Jeremy Hefner at Citi Field today as the Nationals and Mets wrap up a three-game set.

Twice this season, the Nats have taken the first two games of a series against the Mets only to drop the finale, failing to record the sweep.

Today they'll rely on Strasburg as they try to notch their fifth straight victory.

In his only career start at Citi Field coming into today, Strasburg fired six scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and striking out nine. That performance came in a 4-0 Nats win back on April 11.

The 26-year-old Hefner only has faced the Nats once; he allowed four runs (three earned) over six innings in a June 6 loss at Nationals Park.
