Preview: Pirates at Mets June 2, 2011

Pittsburgh Pirates (26-28) at New York Mets (25-30) 1:10pm

Paul Maholm (2-7 3.18) vs. Mike Pelfrey (3-4 5.00)

TV: SNY              Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets need a win just to split the four game series today. They’ll do it behind Pelfrey and, unfortunately, the Mets have lost the last three games he started. Pelfrey only got 6 runs of support in those three games though.

Maholm has been up and down but his last start was fantastic. He threw a complete game 3-hit shutout in Chicago. Prior to that, the Pirates lost five games in a row that he started but he hasn’t gotten much run support either. The Pirates hit about as little as the Mets do so a low scoring affair today wouldn’t be a surprise.

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.
