NEW YORK — Jordan Zimmermann will have a chance to become the first 17-game winner in the National League Tuesday night when he takes the mound to make his 29th start of the season.

Zimmermann seems to have regained his pre-All-Star game form of late, going at least seven innings and never allowing more than three runs in any of his last three starts. He’s facing a largely depleted Mets lineup on Tuesday night, too, which mustered only one hit off Gio Gonzalez on Monday.
