Tuesday's Mets-Reds lineups

NEW YORK -- Here are the lineups for Tuesday's 7:10 p.m. ET game between the Cincinnati Reds and New York Mets at Citi Field.

With Yoenis Cespedes out of the lineup for a fourth straight day due to an upper right leg bruise, Michael Conforto starts against a left-hander for the first time since his major-league debut on July 24 of last season. Conforto has been placed in the cleanup slot for the second time in his career. He also batted there on Sept. 4, 2015.

Kevin Plawecki starts at catcher, with Travis d'Arnaud landing on the disabled list with a right rotator cuff strain.

Bartolo Colon aims for career win No. 220. That would break a tie with Pedro Martinez for second among Dominican-born pitchers. Juan Marichal ranks first with 243.

The Mets have won a franchise-record nine straight games against Cincinnati. The franchise record for consecutive wins against one opponent is 15 -- against the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1986 and '87.
