Preview: Phillies at Mets May 27, 2011

Philadelphia Phillies (31-19) at New York Mets (23-26) 7:10pm

Roy Oswalt (3-2 2.77) vs. Chris Capuano (3-5 5.36)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The first place Phillies arrive in town for the first time this season with a 1 game lead in the division over the Marlins. The just took three of four games from the Reds in Philly and are probably thinking they can take this series in New York.

Oswalt has made 7 starts this season and the Phils are 3-4 in those starts although he’s pitched well and should have 6 wins by now. He’s allowed 2 runs or less in 6 of 7 starts so it won’t be easy tonight.

Capuano, on the other hand, got hit by the Yankees in his last start for 6 runs in 5.1 innings. He’s had some good starts but mostly against second division teams. He’s the kind of starter that gets eaten alive by teams with a good offense.
