Jason Jennings VS John Maine
Jason Jennings John Maine
1 - 3, 3.69 9 - 4, 2.74

Your Houston Astros have their hands full tonight facing the Mets and John Maine. Maine having given up less than 4 runs in 14 of his 16 starts this year brings an impressive 2.74 ERA to the table. Jennings having only won 1 time this year, comes off two 7 inning, 3 run games in which he earned losses in each. Hopefully the Astros can be the first team this year to score more than 5 runs against Maine.

Surprsingly, the Mets don't look to be as power packed as they did last year. Just looking at the AVG of the starting lineup, the Mets only have 2 batters hitting above .275 in the lineup while the Astros bring 4. But the Mets also have 4 All-Stars on the team including ex-Astros closer Billy Wagner.
