Time for "Maine Man" to Win One!!!

Tonite, in game 2 of their 3-game series, Mets' starter John Maine takes the rubber in his third attempt for his first win this season vs. the Washington Nationals. Maine had only a no-decision to show for his previous start, vs. the Phillies, six days ago. He gave up 5 walks and 5 hits, with only 1 strike-out, following what was an extremely impressive spring training for the righthander, in his third season with the blue and orange. He'll be facing the Nat's Matt Chico, who has looked good so far this season.

Tonite's line-up for Willie Randolph's crew:

SS Jose Reyes
LF Ryan Church
3B David Wright
CF Carlos Beltran
1B Carlos Delgado
LF Angel Pagan
C Brian Schneider
2B Luis Castillo
P John Maine

Once again, Castillo is batting eighth, and I wouldn't be surprised if Easley starts at second tomorrow, especially if the Mets win tonite, in anticipation of this weekend's series versus the Phils. Back after the game - LET'S GO METS!!!!!
