The New York Mets will turn to Miguel Batista (1-2 4.33 ERA) to turn things around after Johan Santana was blasted in Friday night's 7-6 loss. He'll be taking on Los Angeles Dodgers' starter Chris Capuano (9-5 2.75 ERA) in Game 2 of this three-game series. The Mets desperately need a win, having lost eight of their last 10 and fallen to 4 1/2 games out of the Wild Card race.
Batista is 4-0 in his last five starts vs. the Dodgers, but has not faced the team since 2006, when he was a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Mets last saw Capuano in a 3-2 victory from late June, with Capuano giving up all three runs.
