Mets can close in on Wild Card as they welcome Padres to Citi Field

Fresh off a series win against the Marlins, the Mets (30-37) welcome the Padres (37-35) to Citi Field for three games. This presents the perfect opportunity for New York to make some head way in the Wild Card race, as crazy as that is to say considering their record and play during much of this season. They currently sit 4.5 games behind San Diego, while falling three back of the Giants for the final National League playoff spot—it is worth noting that they also trail the Cardinals, the Reds, the Diamondbacks, the Cubs, the Pirates, and the Nationals.
