Mets/Phillies Game Two of Three game Series

The Mets and Phillies will play game two of three in Philadelphia tonight.  The Mets have gotten out to a fast start which is exactly what they needed.  The Mets lost on Opening Day and have since won three games in a row.  The pitching matchup for tonight is Mike Pelfrey vs. Joe Blanton. 

Here is the lineup for tonight:Reyes, Harris, Wright, Beltran, Pagan, Davis, Emaus, Thole, Pelfrey. 

Phillies Lineup:Shane Victorino, Placido Polanco, Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard, Raul Ibanez, Ben Francisco, Orr, Schneider, Joe Blanton

Here are some notes, Terry Collins said tonight that he needs to get Francisco Rodriguez into a game since he has had three games off.  Carlos Beltran will most likely get a rest tomorrow since it is a day game after a night game.  He expects Mike Pelfrey to pitch better tonight and feels that he only made one real mistake in the first game and it was a grand slam. 

He wants to keep playing everyone to make sure all 25 guys are sharp.  He feels that David Wrights hot start has something to do with Beltrans presence in the lineup behind him.
