The Mets play the third game of a four-game series in Arizona against the Diamondbacks. Starting Pitcher Jorge Sosa, who was miserable in Spring Training, has been GREAT in AAA, starting off 4-0. That success paid off, earning him a start with the Mets against Brandon Webb and the D-Backs tonight. To Make room for Sosa, the Mets sent down the struggling Ambiorix Burgos to AAA New Orleans.
As for last night’s win against the Diamondbacks, Starting Pitcher John Maine continued his hot streak to start the season… FIVE wins and ZERO losses! He also holds the lowest ERA in the National League. All of that certainly helps. The last Mets pitcher to go 5-0 was Pedro Martinez in 2006.
