Game 17 lineups: Nats at Mets

NEW YORK - It’s another gray, overcast, chilly day at Citi Field. And I’m talking the about the weather, not Mets fans’ emotions about their team right now.

The Amazins are hurting, as was clearly evident last night when Terry Collins had to resort to pinch-hitting starting pitchers and sending injured players up to bat in extra innings because nobody else was available. They’re hoping Jacob deGrom starts today after getting scratched Friday night with a stiff neck, but they’ve got lefty Sean Gilmartin ready just in case.

Ryan Zimmerman and Matt Wieters also are starting again after coming off the bench last night. Jayson Werth remains sidelined with a minor groin injury, but the club is hoping he’ll be good to go for Sunday night’s series finale.
