Cheesesteaks And Rib Sauce

Tuesday: Kris Benson (5-2, 3.67 ERA) vs. Brett Myers (5-3, 2.19 ERA):

Benson made his debut on May 5th against these same Phillies. He looked sharp until the 5th when he walked a man in to tie the game, and Aaron Heilman came in and shut the door in long relief to pick up the victory. Willie Randolph has obviously blocked this game out of his memory. Myers struck out 10 Mets in 7 innings on May 3rd at Shea in a 10-3 Phillies win over Tom Glavine.

Wednesday: Victor Zambrano (3-6, 4.06 ERA) vs. Vincente Padilla (3-6, 6.23 ERA):

This is the rematch of the 16-4 victory by the Mets on April 19th. Padilla also lost the Cinco de Mayo game against Benson.

Thursday: Kaz Ishii (1-6, 5.40 ERA) vs. Robinson Tejeda (1-0, 2.18 ERA):

Pat Burrell is 4 for 9 against Kaz Ishii lifetime. But now that Ishii is a Met, those numbers are due to go up. Burrell against the pitchers on the current Mets staff is hitting .244 with 11 HR's and 31 RBI's in 176 at bats. But against pitchers wearing the Met uniform all time, he's hitting .258 with an OPS of .972, 27 HR's and 74 RBI's in 322 career at bats.
