Mets Vs. Marlins: Carlos Zambrano Brings 16-Inning Scoreless Streak Into Sunday's Contest

Carlos Zambrano and the Miami Marlins (17-16) will look to rebound from Saturday's 9-3 drubbing at the hands of the New York Mets (19-14) when they take the field on Sunday at Marlins Park.

Zambrano (1-2, 1.98 ERA) brings a 16-inning scoreless streak into the contest and is coming off his first win in a Marlins uniform, Monday's 4-0 victory over the Houston Astros. In that start, Zambrano struck out nine batters while allowing just three hits. The sometimes erratic Zambrano has 22 strikeouts against just six walks in his last four starts.

Jonathon Niese (2-1, 4.01) takes the Hill for the Mets. In three career starts against the Marlins, Niese is 0-2 with a 6.14 ERA
