New York Mets (4-5)_Los Angeles Angels(4-5)
Gee: A late homer cost Gee his first win of the season last Saturday against the Reds, but Ike Davis' walk-off grand slam at least prevented him from taking his first loss. As a result, Gee will still be looking for his first decision against the Angels.Skaggs: Skaggs was lights out vs. the Astros in his 2014 debut, giving up one unearned run in eight innings on four hits and one walk. The 22-year-old had lots of success with the two-seamer, which he didn't even throw in Spring Training.
Niese: Making his first start of the season after an abbreviated stint on the disabled list, Niese held the Reds to two runs over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in New York. Niese has faced the Angels only once in his career, giving up five runs in four innings.Weaver: Two starts in and Weaver is still searching for his vintage form. The Angels' ace gave up four runs (three earned) in 6 1/3 innings on Opening Day, then four home runs - on only five hits - while struggling with fastball command vs. the Astros.
Colon: Among Colon's many former teams are the Angels, for whom he won his only Cy Young Award in 2005. In two starts against his old club last season, Colon was 2-0 with a 1.25 ERA. The year before, he was 2-1 with a 1.66 mark.Wilson: Wilson bounced back in a stellar outing vs. the Astros Monday, which saw him give up only one run on four hits and one walk while striking out seven in eight innings. He was four outs away from a shutout when he gave up a solo homer.
