The Mets try to salvage the series today as they take on Andy Pettitte for game three of the Subway Series. The Mets have dropped the first two games of the series and really need to bounce back. Yesterday the Mets had the pitching but outside of solo homers, the offense fell short. Niese will try to get the Mets back on the right track today.

On the season he is 4-2 with a 4.11 ERA over 11 starts and 61.2 innings. His last outing was a good one as he allowed 0 runs over 6.0 innings, his start before that was rough (4 ER over 5.0 IP) and before that he pitched 7.2 innings allowing only 1 ER. Last year he picked up the loss against the Yankees as he allowed 3 ER in 6 innings of work. The Yankees have the following numbers against Jon:

Ibanez 4-16, HR
Swisher 1-4
Cano 2-3, 2B
Granderson 1-3
Jones 0-3

Pettitte is 3-2 this season with a 2.78 ERA over 35.2 innings of work. Two starts ago was his worst of the season as he allowed 5 ER over 7.0 innings, but he bounced back nicely in his last start as he allowed no runs in 7.0 innings of work. The last time he faced the New York Mets was in 2009 where he allowed 5 ER in 5.0 innings of work. The Mets have the following numbers against him:

Bay 14-32, 2B, 3B, HR
Wright 10-21, 2 2B, 2 HR
Hairston 4-12, 2 2B, HR
Torres 1-4

Let’s Go Mets!
