Preview: Mets at Pirates June 13, 2011

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.

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.
