The Mets seem to be in a win one lose one funk right now and look to completely put last night behind them as they take on the Reds tonight. For the Mets, it will be their second two game series in a row. Tonight the bats will look to wake up against Mike Leake as Santana gets the start for the Mets.

Santana is 1-2 on the season with a 2.92 ERA over 37.0 innings and 7 starts. In his last four starts he has a 1-0 record over 25.2 innings with a 2.45 ERA. The last time he faced the Reds was back in 2010 when he pitched a complete game shutout allowing only 3 hits. The Reds have the following numbers against Santana:

Ludwig 4-25, 2B, 2 HR
Phillips 5-19, 2 2B, 3B
Cairo 5-17, 3 2B
Votto 3-12
Bruce 2-11, 2 2B
Stubbs 0-4

Mike Leake is off to a start he would like to forget as he has an 0-5 record over 6 starts and 31.2 innings with a 7.11 ERA. He is coming off of his worst start of the season where he allowed 6 ER over 7 hits and 3.0 innings of work. Last year he made one start against the Mets where he pitched 6.2 innings allowing 8 hits and 2 ER. The Mets have the following numbers against Mike:

Cedeno 4-11
Torres 2-7
Wright 1-6
Turner 2-3
Murphy 1-3, 2B
