Paul Maholm (2-7 3.18) vs. Mike Pelfrey (3-4 5.00)
TV: SNY Radio: WFAN
What to watch: The Mets need a win just to split the four game series today. They’ll do it behind Pelfrey and, unfortunately, the Mets have lost the last three games he started. Pelfrey only got 6 runs of support in those three games though.
Maholm has been up and down but his last start was fantastic. He threw a complete game 3-hit shutout in Chicago. Prior to that, the Pirates lost five games in a row that he started but he hasn’t gotten much run support either. The Pirates hit about as little as the Mets do so a low scoring affair today wouldn’t be a surprise.
