There will be a couple of pitching firsts in today’s rubber match at Citi Field. Mets starter Jacob deGrom has never pitched against the Chicago White Sox and in turn, Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez has never faced the New York Mets.

The White Sox finally snapped their losing streak last night and turn to Gonzalez today in search of their first series win in quite a while. Gonzalez took a no-decision in his most recent outing, allowing three runs on eight hits in a season-high 6 1/3 innings last Friday against the Royals.

Jacob deGrom also pitched last Friday and took a no-decision of his own after leaving the game with a lead following seven innings of work in which he allowed just one run and three hits in seven solid innings of work. The no-decision was his fourth straight.
