The Mets will trot out Steven Matz (8-7, 3.35), who lost for the fourth time in five decisions in a 6-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies at home on July 29th. Matz allowed two earned runs on 10 hits in six innings and he has been hurt by a lack of run support (two runs or less in each of his four recent losses). Matz has faced the Yankees just once in his career, taking a win last year in his rookie season.

The Yankees were going to start Ivan Nova (7-6, 4.90), but he was just traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Their starting pitcher has not been announced as of this writing. The Yanks lost four straight to end July and while sitting with a .500 record in fourth place in the American League East, decided to have a big fire sale. Carlos Beltran and All-Star reliever Andrew Miller were also moved. A lot of young prospects are in the process of being called up as this team will look very different down the stretch of the season.
