The Cubs and Mets start their last series before the All-Star break tonight as the Mets look for revenge from the last Cubs/Mets series. Last night the Mets were on the verge of losing the series against the Phillies when the offense started a real, 2012 Mets style ralley and with a some good AB’s they got the runs in. Anyway, Johan Santana looks to keep the energy levels up as he takes on Travis Wood.

Santana is 6-4 on the season over 16 games and 98.0 innings with a 2.76 ERA. Johan is 2-1 in his last three starts (20 IP) with a 0.90 ERA including 6.0 innings against the Cubs where he allowed 2 ER over 5 hits. The Cubs have the following numbers again Johan:

Johnson: 13-20, 2B, 3B, HR
DeJesus: 4-24, 2B
Soriano 2-20
Mather 1-6
Castro 0-2

Travis Wood is 3-3 on the season over 9 starts and 56.0 innings of work with a 3.05 ERA. Wood is the midst of a good stretch where he has allowed 1 ER in his last three starts, including a 7.0 inning shut out against the Mets last week. The Mets have the following numbers against Wood:

Cedeno 3-6, 2B
Torres 2-5
Davis 1-5
Tejada 0-6
Wright 3-6, 3B
Duda 0-3
Nickeas 2-3, 2B

Let’s Go Mets!
