NOTES: RHP Zack Wheeler (3 1, 3.58) pitches the series finale Thursday. The prized rookie threw six shutout innings at Atlanta to win his big league debut June 18. Mets OF Lucas Duda (ribcage) and catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud (foot) began their rehab assignments in the rookie level Gulf Coast League. Duda will play left field and first base during his rehab stint, Collins said. LHP Jonathon Niese (shoulder) should begin a rehab assignment in the GCL no later than next week, Collins said. Reserve infielder Justin Turner will make his first start Thursday since coming off the disabled list, Collins said.

It was an average weekend for road fatalities in Scotland which meant it was busy. In Brechin, at 8.45 pm that same night, Andrew Gardiner crashed his motorcycle and sidecar into a female cyclist, spinning his machine over and dashing his head on the ground. He died in the local infirmary, just before midnight. ,
