Johan Santana (10-7 2.97) vs Zach Duke (5-12 5.32)
TV: SNY Radio: WFAN
What to watch: The Mets actually have a chance to sweep a road series against an NL team today. Hey, it is the Pirates though. Santana went 8 innings in his last start in Houston but took the loss after giving up 4 runs. Duke has been getting knocked around recently and the Pirates lost the last four games he started. It’ll be interesting to see if the Mets go with Chris Carter in right field again against a lefty. The lineup has been scoring runs but doing it against righties.
