Tuesday, September 25, 2012 • 7:10 PM Citi Field • Flushing, NY LHP Wandy Rodriguez (11-13, 3.76) vs. RHP Collin McHugh (0-2, 3.86) Starting Lineup Ruben Tejada – SS Justin Turner – 2B David Wright – 3B Scott Hairston – LF Ike Davis – 1B Kelly Shoppach – C Andres Torres – CF Mike Baxter – RF Collin McHugh – RHP The Mets look to win five in a row tonight as they take on the Pirates for game 2.

Collin hasn’t pitched against the Pirates yet in his career and no one on the Pirates roster has stats against McHugh.
