Mets (30-42) vs White Sox (31-42) Tuesday 8:10 PM • U.S. Cellular Field RHP Zack Wheeler (1-0, 0.00) vs RHP Chris Sale (5-6, 2.69) Game Notes Reliever Greg Burke has been optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room for right-hander Zack Wheeler who was added to the active roster. Wheeler makes his second major league start as the Mets open a two-game series against the Chicago White Sox. Wheeler tossed six scoreless innings in his major league debut a week ago against the Atlanta Braves and aims to cut down his walk total after issuing five bases on balls in his victorious first big league start. David Wright collected four extra-base hits (two doubles, one triple, one home run) on Sunday at Philadelphia to tie the franchise record. Since June 5, Wright is hitting .405 (30-74) with 10 runs scored, eight doubles, five home runs and 11 RBI over a span of 16 games. His on-base percentage is .443 during that span. Wright leads Pablo Sandoval by 128,831 votes to start the 2013 All-Star Game
