New York Mets Vs. Florida Marlins: Capuano Looks To Lead Mets Back Above .500

The New York Mets will face the Florida Marlins for a short one-game series Monday night at Citi Field to make up a rainout from May.  The meeting will be just the fifth of the season between the division rivals, but the two teams will face each other seven times over the next two and a half weeks.

Both teams are trying to get and stay above .500, but the Marlins seem to be the team headed there having won eight of their last nine with new (old) manager Jack McKeon back at the helm.  The Mets, meanwhile, have lost four of five including an 8-5 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday night.

Chris Capuano (8-8, 4.12) will try to get the Mets back on track against Clay Hensley (0-2, 3.60).  Capuano lost his last time out against the San Francisco Giants but has pitched much better than his .500 record would indicate.  Over his last seven starts he is 5-2 with a sub-3.00 ERA.

Capuano and the Mets will still be without SS Jose Reyes, who isn't slated to re-join the team until Tuesday at the earliest.

After the short stay by the Marlins, the Mets will close out their homestand with a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
