After an off day on Thursday the New Y0rk Mets will get back to action and hopefully back to their winning ways tonight against the Miami Marlins in Marlins Park.  Johan Santana will tangle with Mark Buehrle as the Mets go for their sixth straight win and look to continue their domination over their NL East brethren in 2012.

Santana picked up his victory of the season in his last outing against the Arizona Diamondbacks and dominated Miami hitters in his start against Miami back on April 24 in Citi Field (6 2/3 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 11K).   Buehrle took a loss the first time he faced New York but the blame could hardly be put on his shoulders as the lefty battled for 7 innings giving up just 2 ER in an eventual 5-1 defeat.

Line-up:

Notes:

With Ruben Tejada on the disabled list…..


Terry reiterates Ronny Cedeno will be regular SS. With Mets playing 20 straight days, Cedeno cannot play every day, so Jordany limited time. about 2 hours ago via EchofonReplyRetweetFavorite @AdamRubinESPN Adam Rubin

As for a corresponding move, it looks like Vinny Rottino is getting sent back down:
