The Astros have averaged 4 runs per game against the Mets this series while allowing the Mets to score just 3 runs per game... seems we should have won both games... but unfortunately, all 8 runs we've scored this series came in yesterday's 8-3 winner. One thing that has been constant in this series is the Astros pitching... starting with the complete game, 3 run outing by Roy Oswalt on Friday and then the 7 inning 3 run outing by Brandon Backe yesterday, the pitching has been good. Unfortunately, the offense has been less predictable. Hopefully we didn't use up all of the offense yesterday.

Today we send Randy Wolf to the hill against Oliver Perez. Wolf has been... okay since joining the Astros. His Astros career would look much better had he not given up 6 runs over 4 innings the last time he went out. One thing Wolf has managed to do is keep the ball in the park, allowing just 2 home runs over 26 1/3 innings pitched as an Astro.

Perez has faced the Astros just once this season and earned a loss by pitching 6 innings and allowing 4 earned runs. Last time out, Perez went 6 1/3 innings allowing 3 runs and earned a no decision.
