The Mets look to make it three in a row against the Phillies this afternoon. Yesterday, David Wright slugged another homer to make it two straight games since returning. It’s amazing how much better the lineup is with him in it.

Anyway Carlos Torres gets the start for the Amazin’s today and he is 3-5 with a 3.39 ERA over 74.1 innings this year. In the four games in September he has pitched 19.0 innings with a 5.21 ERA. He has pitched 8.1 innings this year against the Phillies with 2 ER and 7 strikeouts. The Phillies have the following numbers against Carlos:

Ruiz 1-5, 2B
Frandsen 2-4, HR
Brown 2-3
Mayberry 0-3
Rollins 0-2
Ruf 0-2

The Mets bats will try to deal with Cliff Lee tonight who is 14-6 with a 2.95 ERA over 29 starts this season and 207.2 innings. In his last five starts he has pitched 37.0 innings with a 1.95 ERA. Against the Mets he is 2-1 with a 3.18 ERA over 22.0 innings this year. The Mets have the following numbers against Lee:

Murphy 8-29, 4 2B
