James Shields will start for the Padres when they face the Mets on Tuesday in New York in the first game of their 10-game road trip. Noah Syndergaard (4-5, 2.97 ERA) will get the start for the Mets in the three-game series.
Shields said he had more in the tank after his last start where he pitched five scoreless innings before being taken out in the Padres' 7-1 loss to the Giants on July 22. The right-hander picked up a win in his last start against the Mets on June 3, pitching seven innings, while allowing six hits and two runs.
