Dickey for the Amazins as he tries to push back Blanton and the Phillies. Dickey will attempting to bounce back from his last start where he allowed 4 ER over 6 innings to the Braves as he picked up the loss.

The Phillies have these numbers against Robert Allen:
Ibanez 4-16, 2 HR
Werth 3-9, 2B, HR
The Mets bats will try to crack Joe Blanton tonight, who is 7-6 on the season with a 5.04 ERA. He is looking to bounce back from a start with similar numbers as Dickey. Blanton in his last start allowed 4 ER over 6 innings of work. This season he is 0-1 against the Mets while allowing 7 ER over 12 innings of work. so the Mets are going to try to repeat that tonight. The Mets have these numbers on Joe the pitcher:
Reyes 2-15, HR
