With a month remaining in the regular season, the Mets are all but done, while the Chicago still has a slim chance to get into the postseason, but need to start moving soon.
"Whomever we're playing, if it's a first-place team or a team that's not playing as well, you've still got to go out and play a good baseball game to win," Cubs manager Lou Piniella said. "Hopefully, we'll string quite a few of them together in the next couple weeks."
The pitching starters for this Friday matinee will consist of LHP Pat Misch (0-1, 4.09 ERA) for New York vs. LHP Ted Lilly (9-8, 3.40 ERA) for Chicago. Misch will be making his first start of the MLB Odds season, after LHP Johan Santana was declared unavailable for the rest of the season due to injury. His opponent tonight has been very good as of late, surrendering 2 runs in his last 12 inning on the mound.
