The Mets hope to put the spurs to the Rangers

After winning five straight games, as well as 11 of their last 15, the Mets (33-37) are headed to the Lone-Star State for a three-game series with the Texas Rangers (33-38). Owners of almost exactly the same record, the discrepancy of their divisions is shown by the Rangers being in second place, with the Mets occupying fourth.

The Rangers are also home to two former Met pitchers, Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer. Both won a World Series title with the Rangers last season, but neither has pitched this season. deGrom is recovering from Tommy John Surgery and may be ready to go as early as August, but that seems optimistic for a pitcher of his age.
