Jason Hammel (1-0 7.20) vs. Mike Pelfrey (0-1 15.63)
TV: SNY Radio: WFAN
What to watch: The Rockies come to town for a four game series after taking three of four in Pittsburgh. They’re playing some good baseball after signing CarGo and Troy Tulowitzki to big contracts this offseason. Hammel’s first start against the Dodgers wasn’t very good (5 IP, 4 runs) but he did get a win.
Pelfrey has been struggling badly in his first two starts. He needs to turn things around quickly or the Mets will be in trouble with Johan Santana out until mid-season. The Mets have lost four of their last five games and need a win and a good start from Pelfrey tonight badly.
