The Marlins are getting this spoiler thing down. After last night's game the Mets have to hope, beyond all hopes, that they can win this game and next one and that the Phillies will lose two in a row. Which will only guarantee that the Mets will get to play a playoff game on Monday.
The Marlins starting pitcher is Chris Seddon.
The Mets plan to trot out to the hill. John Maine.
Game time is 1:10 p.m.
Seddon is a lefty who proved to be problematic to the Mets the last time he faced them. In that outing, he only gave up 3 H and 2 ER in 5 IP. The only down side in the start came on Lo Duca's 2-run home run.
Maine appears to be wearing down as the season goes on. But his last start against the Marlin wasn't all that bad. He only gave up 3 ER in 5 IP but did strikeout 9.
For all things Mets, check out Amazin' Avenue.
