The Mets start a four game set tonight with the Cardinals to wrap up their 11 game home stand. In their last series, the Mets were unable to take two of three from the Phillies as the Mets bullpen just could not hold it together. The Cardinals will be seeing a different team than the Phillies did as the Mets now have a different looking bullpen. Tonight’s game features Adam Wainright vs. Johan Santana as Carlos Beltran makes his return to Queens.

Santana is 2-2 this season with 2.75 ERA over 10 starts and 59.0 innings of work. His last start was masterful as he through the first complete game shutout (and complete game period) for anyone on the Mets staff this season as he struck out 7. In 2010, Johan had two no decisions against the Cards as he allowed 7 ER over 12.2 innings of work. The Cardinals have the following numbers against him:

Beltran 6-26, 2B, 2 HR
Molina 7-17
Schumaker 4-16, 2B
Furcal 4-12, 2 2B
Holliday 3-11, 2B, HR

Wainwright is 4-5 this season over 10 starts and 58.2 innings with an ERA of a 4.45. Adam has improved greatly over his last two starts as he has pitched a combine 15.0 innings with one earned run. In 2010 he made two starts against the Mets where he allowed 8 earned runs, 8 total over 14.0 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Wainwright, who in an odd course of baseball history is now on the same team with Carlos Beltran:

Wright 0-7
Quintanilla 3-6, 2 2B
Davis 1-3
Johnson 0-3
Torres 1-1
