TORONTO (Ticker) -- The New York Mets have won the last 10 games started by Tom Glavine. They will look to extend that streak in Friday's opener of a three-game interleague series against the Toronto Blue Jays.


A two-time Cy Young Award winner, Glavine (10-2, 3.48 ERA) has gone 8-0 with a 3.83 ERA in 10 starts since a 6-2 loss at San Francisco on April 24. He allowed four runs and nine hits in six innings of a 9-4 win against Baltimore on Sunday, becoming the first pitcher in the majors to reach double digits in victories this season.


The 40-year-old Glavine has not been particularly sharp in his last three outings, posting an 8.04 ERA and allowing 23 hits in 15 2/3 innings. He has gone 5-1 despite a 5.15 ERA in seven starts on the road this season.


With a win Friday, Glavine would tie Robin Roberts for 26th on the all-time list with 286 victories. He also would improve to 100 games over .500 in his career.


The Mets salvaged a split of a four-game series with Cincinnati on Thursday behind David Wright, who hit a pair of two-run homers in a 6-2 triumph. New York has won 11 of its last 15 games and owns the best record in the National League.


Wright is batting .378 (31-for-82) with nine home runs and 25 RBI this month. He next will face rookie Casey Janssen (5-5, 4.50 ERA), who allowed seven runs and 11 hits in just three innings of an 8-2 loss against Florida on Saturday.


The 24-year-old Janssen has posted a 17.05 ERA in losing his last two starts. He had gone 4-0 with a 2.30 ERA in his previous five starts.


The Blue Jays posted a 3-2 victory at Atlanta on Thursday, completing their first three-game sweep of the season. Toronto has not won or lost more than three straight games this season.


Alex Rios batted .143 (3-for-21) with just one RBI on the Blue Jays' six-game road trip. He has hit .325 with 10 homers and 27 RBI in 36 games here this season.
