A great outing from rookie Jesse Hahn yesterday evened up the series at Citi Field. This morning Ian Kennedy will try to follow up with a great outing of his own to help the Padres to a series win. His last start resulted in his first loss in four tries as he allowed five runs through seven innings of work against the Phillies. He also gave up five runs in his most recent appearance against the New York, but lasted only 4 2/3 innings that time. Prior to that, he had gone 4-0 with a 3.45 ERA in five career starts against the Mets.
Daisuke Matsuzaka will get the ball for the Mets and make his third start of the season. He's given up five runs in 10 1/3 innings through his first two starts, walking eight and striking out seven. Prior to that he posted a 2.45 ERA through 29 1/3 innings.
See how the series plays out at 10:05 PDT this morning.
