Wednesday's Mets-Dodgers lineups

LOS ANGELES -- Here are the lineups for Wednesday's 10:10 p.m. ET game between the New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium.

Neil Walker returns after missing three starts with a bruised right shin.

Rene Rivera, who threw out one of three base stealers in San Diego, catches Noah Syndergaard for a second straight start.

David Wright gets a scheduled day off.

Syndergaard pitches one day shy of the one-year anniversary of his major-league debut.

Syndergaard has thrown 269 pitches registering 97 mph or more this season, by far the most in the majors. Arquimedes Caminero ranks second with 165, followed by Nate Eovaldi with 162 and Craig Kimbrel with 146.

Beginning with the day of Syndergaard's debut, his 29 percent strikeout rate trails only Clayton Kershaw (34 percent) and Max Scherzer (30 percent) in the National League among qualified starters.
