Preview: Mets at Brewers June 7, 2011

New York Mets (28-31) at Milwaukee Brewers (34-26) 8:10pm

Chris Capuano (3-6 5.19) vs. Shaun Marcum (6-2 2.78)

TV: ESPN              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Brewers are coming off a 4-game sweep of the Marlins in Florida. They’re playing really well this year and are only 1.5 games behind the Cardinals in the NL Central. And Marcum is pitching really well too. He’s 6-1 in his last seven decisions. His last start was a no-decision loss in Cincinnati when he went 7 IP and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits.

Capuano returns to Milwaukee where he spent the last five years pitching for the Brewers. He has lost his last two decisions and has pitched better than his record. The bullpen hasn’t helped him and when he has pitched well, he hasn’t gotten run support. His record and ERA are atrocious but he hasn’t gotten a lot of help.
