Tonight's Matchup

Tonight, at 7:05PM, the (8-4) Mets take on the (6-7) Marlins in Miami to kickoff a two game series. Here's a look at tonight's starters:

John Maine (1-0 1.54ERA)

Maine wasn't nearly as sharp in his second start of the season as he was in his first, battling through a frigid afternoon in New York's home opener on Monday. The young right-hander allowed two runs in a brief 4 2/3-inning stint -- not terrible, considering he also walked six batters.
Dontrelle Willis (3-0 3.32ERA)

The D-Train enjoys his most success against the Mets. Willis is 11-2 with a 2.02 ERA lifetime facing New York. He is especially tough pitching in April, as he now is 12-1 (2.49) for his career in the month. Willis comes off a solid win at Atlanta, where he worked a season-best seven innings, while giving up three runs on eight hits with five strikeouts.
