astrosNew York Mets (45-51 Road: 20-31)  at Houston Astros (50-47 Home: 28-24) 2:05pm

Livan Hernandez (6-5 4.93) vs. Brian Moehler (7-5 4.92)


What to watch: The Mets and Astros play the rubber game of the series before the Mets finally head home from this long road trip. Hernandez had a great start in Washington going 7 innings and only giving up 2 runs. He had several clunkers before that, and there was even speculation that he could lose his spot in the rotation. Moehler has been very consistent. He hasn’t allowed more than 3 earned runs in a game since June 9. He’s 5-1 in his last seven starts.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
