Is it just me or were some of those bastards in Philly cheering when Reyes got hurt than booed him when he got up. Reyes stays in the game and a couple pitches later Wright drills an RBI triple, justice served! 2-0 Metropolitans

 

You are surprised that these mutants cheered when he was hurt and booed when he got up. Its been since 1983 that that cesspool of a second city has had a championship, they are delerious at this point, they have no clue what to cheer anymore. Its why they boo McNabb and cheer him three plays later,they are just a bunch of lost souls.

Game Preview

 

The Mets look to push their winning streak to five in the middle game of a key three-game series at Philadelphia on Saturday.

 

David Wright tied his career high with four hits in Friday's 6-4 victory over the Phillies.

 

"You saw in this ballpark, no lead is safe," Wright said. "It's another one of our early-season tests. We have to prove we can win in Philadelphia."

 

Left-hander Oliver Perez last faced the Phillies on the Mets' final Opening Day at Shea Stadium on April 8. In 5 2/3 innings, he allowed only three hits and no runs while walking three and striking out two.

 

In three starts this season, Perez has pitched well, giving up 16 hits and six earned runs over 16 innings.

 

Saturday's game will likely continue the trend of having a little more intensity considering it's against the rival Phillies and will be aired before a national audience as the FOX Game of the Week.

 

"I'm looking forward to it," Perez said. "This rivalry is fun to pitch in. It should be a good game and I'm sure the fans will be ready to go."

 

Perez will be opposed by 45-year-old left-hander Jamie Moyer, who is 7-3 with a 2.87 ERA in 15 career games against the Mets. On April 8 against Perez, Moyer held the Mets to two runs over six innings.

Pitching matchup

NYM: LHP Oliver Perez (1-0, 3.38 ERA)

This will be the fourth start of the season for Perez and his third career start at Citizens Bank Park. Perez has pitched well in the hitter-friendly ballpark with a 1-1 record and 2.84 ERA. In 12 2/3 innings, he has recorded 15 strikeouts.

 

PHI: LHP Jamie Moyer (1-0, 5.52 ERA)

Moyer will also be making his fourth start of '08 while looking for his second victory. In 14 2/3 innings, he has allowed 22 hits and 12 earned runs.

 

Tidbits

Thursday's 3-2 win in 14 innings over the Nationals was Willie Randolph's 500th career game as Mets manager. He is the eighth Mets skipper to reach that mark, joining Casey Stengel, Gil Hodges, Yogi Berra, Joe Torre, Davey Johnson, Dallas Green and Bobby Valentine. ... One more note about Thursday's 14-inning game: it was the Mets' longest since July 7, 2007, when they defeated the Astros, 5-3, in 17 innings at Houston. ... Moises Alou had one hit in a rehab assignment in extended Spring Training in Port St. Lucie, Fla. There's no timetable for his return.
