The New York Mets will visit the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday with Jacob deGrom and Cole Hamels set to go head-to-head in the most intriguing pitching matchup of the night. deGrom, who has been among the best pitchers in baseball all season, will carry a 1.71 ERA, a 0.97 WHIP and an 11.07 K/9 with him to the mound in Chicago. He will look to match his last start against the Cubs back on June 2, when he gave up just one earned run while striking out 13 over seven innings of work. However, New York will be looking for a better result after somehow losing that incredible deGrom start by a 7-1 score.

Meanwhile, Chicago will counter with Cole Hamels, who has put together his best stretch of the season since being acquired from the Texas Rangers before the trade deadline. The Cubs have won each of Hamels' five starts. The veteran lefty has posted a 4-0 record with a sparkling 0.79 ERA since arriving in Chicago. Hamels has been outstanding at Wrigley Field, recording 16 strikeouts in 16 innings of work with a 0.89 ERA over two starts.
