Houston Astros (64-64 Road: 30-36) at New York Mets (72-57 Home: 40-23) 7:10pm
Brandon Backe (7-12 5.62) vs. John Maine (10-7 3.82)
What to watch: The Mets go for their fifth consecutive win today with Luis Castillo back from the disabled list and starting at second base. Maine hasn’t lost a game in more than a month, since July 18th. But his velocity has been down lately which bears close watching. Backe got rocked in Houston in his last start for 11 runs over 5.2 innings. Lets’ hope he has another start like that tonight.
