Game two of three game series at Shea Stadium: Mets vs. Marlins
Well, if Mike Pelfrey wants to stay in the majors, which his chances just rose after Duque’s injury, he has to find a way to get himself out of jams and not throw too many pitchers around the plate too often tonight.
Pitching Matchup: Pelfrey vs. RHP Ricky Nolasco (0–0, 20.25 ERA), who’s only appearance was from the bullpen last month before heading on the 15-day DL.
Lineup changed quite a bit tonight, probably b/c of Green’s success as of late and hopefully changing D’Wright out of his major slump, and Lo Duca, but Duca hit fine last night. Not that this lineup is crazily different, since it was talked about in Spring Training…well, at least the Wright/Lo Duca swap… i don’t know about the Green/Alou thing.
