Preview: Rockies at Mets April 12, 2011

Colorado Rockies (7-2) at New York Mets (4-6)  7:10pm

Esmil Rogers (1-0 1.23) vs. Jon Niese (0-1 6.55)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets will try to avoid their fourth straight loss tonight to the Rockies at home. Niese got crushed in Philly in his last start going 4 IP and allowing 6 runs. He’ll need to do a lot better than that tonight for the Mets to get a win.

Rogers made one excellent start this season in Pittsburgh going 7.1 IP and allowing only 1 run. He’s only made two relief appearances against the Mets in his career throwing 3 IP and allowing 1 run. Tonight will be only his 11th career start for the 25 year old righty.
