Today’s Mets Lineup vs. Yankees

This is the lineup the Mets are sending to the plate against Yankee pitcher Bartolo Colon:

Jose Reyes – SS
Justin Turner – 2B
Carlos Beltran – RF
Dan Murphy – 3B
Angel Pagan – CF
Jason Bay – LF
Lucas Duda – 1B
Josh Thole – C
Dillon Gee – P

For what it’s worth, Carlos Beltran has a .395 OBP and 1.080 OPS lifetime against Colon. Reyes is career 2-for-3 against him and Bay (0-for-3) is the only other Met to ever face Colon.

Dillon Gee is 4-0 with a 2.13 ERA (six earned/25.1 innings) in four day starts this season. I believe his eyes are brown.
