Game Preview: Mets @ Phillies

The Mets return to Philly tonight into probably the loudest environment they have played in, in a long time. Tonight’s game will feature R.A. 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. In the start before that, Dickey was amazing as he pitched a one run complete game. Against the Phillies this year he has a 2-1 record over three starts with a 2.00 ERA over 18 innings of work. The Phillies have these numbers against Robert Allen:

Polanco 5-20
Ibanez 4-16, 2 HR
Werth 3-9, 2B, HR
Dobbs 1-7
Rollins 1-7

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:

Castillo 9-19, 3B
Reyes 2-15, HR
Wright 4-16, 2 2B
Davis 2-5, 2B
Pagan 3-6
