New York Mets (32-33) at Pittsburgh Pirates (31-33) 7:05pm
Mike Pelfrey (3-4 5.35) vs. Paul Maholm (2-7 3.39)
TV: SNY Radio: WFAN
What to watch: The Mets can take three of four games in this series with a win tonight. Pelfrey is on the hill and has been very inconsistent over his last four starts. His last start in Milwaukee was a good one going 6 IP and allowing 2 runs. But he allowed the Pirates to score 7 in 5 innings at Citi Field in his prior start.
Maholm has been inconsistent recently too. The Mets tee’d off on him last week for 6 runs in 5.2 innings. But he came back in his last start to throw 6 shutout innings only allowing 1 hit.
