phillies logoPhiladelphia Phillies (70-50 Road: 38-21) at New York Mets (57-66 Home: 34-30) 1:10pm

Pedro Martinez (1-0 4.50) vs. Oliver Perez (3-3 6.06)

TV: WPIX

What to watch: Pedro returns! It’s kind of sad to see a formerly-great pitcher hanging onto his career by a thread, but Pedro is back. You can bet that he’ll be highly motivated today against the downtrodden Mets. The Mets are 5-3 in the games that Perez has started since he came off the DL. He wasn’t great in his last start against the Braves giving up 4 earned runs in 5 innings but he hasn’t lost a decision since July 21.
