Tonight's Pitching Match Up

Tonight the (15-8) Mets take on the (11-13) Marlins at Shea Stadium (7:10). Here's a look at the pitchers for tonight's game:

Chan Ho Park (0-0, 0.00ERA)

Chan Ho Park will make his regular-season Mets debut in place of Orlando Hernandez, who had a stiff shoulder examined on Sunday. Park made four starts for Triple-A New Orleans, going 3-1 with a 7.29 ERA while striking out 20 batters in 21 innings.

Scott Olsen (2-1, 6.23)

Despite surrendering three solo homers in the first two innings of his previous start -- a no-decision against the Braves -- Olsen ended up striking out 10. The lefty worked eight innings, giving the bullpen a breather while showing he can settle down. His previous long start was 5 1/3 innings this season. The 23-year-old has struggled with walks allowed all season, but he issued one free pass while facing the Braves, so his command may be turning around.
