NEW YORK METS
Starting Pitcher: Mike Pelfrey (6-9, 4.58 ERA)
Pelfrey should expect some boos in his first start at home since his controversial comments. In his last start, he took a loss against Arizona, giving up two runs in four innings before exiting after being hit on the elbow with a line drive. Pelfrey lost his last start against Milwaukee, on June 9, despite giving up only two runs and four hits in six innings.
Starting Pitcher: Shaun Marcum (10-3, 3.50 ERA)
In his last start, Marcum allowed just one run in 7.2 innings and struck out five Pittsburgh Pirates, but took a no decision. Marcum stifled the Mets back in June, giving up two hits and no runs in six innings, but earned a no decision in an eventual Mets win.
