The Giants have beaten New York in the last two and have won nine of their last ten games.  They are suddenly at the .500 mark.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Mets RH Walker Lockett (0-1, 11.74 ERA) vs. Giants RH Jeff Samardzija (7-7, 3.93)

Lockett is making a spot start in place of Zack Wheeler, who was placed on the injured list with shoulder fatigue last week but hopes to return by the end of the month. The 25-year-old Lockett gave up at least four earned runs in each of his two starts late last month. Lockett started for Triple-A Syracuse last Saturday, allowing one run and eight hits with four strikeouts while throwing 88 pitches in 5 1/3 innings.

Samardzija won his third straight start on Monday, allowing two runs with nine strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings versus Colorado. The 34-year-old native of Indiana posted a 5.93 ERA over five starts in June but has allowed four runs over 21 2/3 frames in three turns this month. Wilson Ramos is 6-for-16 with three homers against Samardzija, who is 0-5 with a 7.32 ERA in 11 career games (five starts) versus the Mets.
