    Mets-Pirates Preview
    STATS LLC

    The Pittsburgh Pirates gave Paul Maholm seven runs of support in three innings against the New York Mets earlier this month before the left-hander unraveled in his team's shocking collapse.

    These days, the Pirates barely seem capable of scoring that many runs in a week.

    Pittsburgh has totaled four runs in its last four games as injuries continue to mount, meaning Maholm may need to be on top of his game Monday night if his team hopes to keep the Mets from taking three of four at PNC Park.

    Maholm (2-7, 3.39 ERA) got 13 total runs of support in his first 10 starts before a 10-0 win in Chicago on May 28, and that offensive assistance carried over to his June 2 outing at Citi Field.

    Despite being staked to a 7-0 lead over the Mets, Maholm couldn't finish the job. He exited with two outs in the sixth and was charged with seven runs in a game the Pirates (31-33) went on to lose 9-8.

    "They spot me seven and I give it up," Maholm said. "It's not something that should happen and hopefully it won't happen again. They got off to a great start and I screwed it up."

    Maholm was much sharper Wednesday against Arizona, allowing only one hit in six innings, but his typical lack of run support returned in Pittsburgh's 3-2, 12-inning win.

    The Pirates have only gotten worse offensively since. Chris Capuano became the latest pitcher to shut Pittsburgh down in Sunday's 7-0 Mets win, the second shutout loss in four games for Clint Hurdle's club.

    Hurdle, however, isn't panicking despite a lineup that was already missing third baseman Pedro Alvarez and its top two catchers, then saw backup third baseman Josh Harrison sit Sunday with a tight right oblique.

    "You keep encouraging them," Hurdle said. "I know that a young team looks for direction and they look for guidance. ... I just know what I believe. I believe in them. Actions will speak louder than words."

    New York (32-33) has won six of eight, and its ability to score runs is difficult to doubt as long as Jose Reyes' marvelous first half continues. The Mets' leadoff man had three hits Sunday, his 13th multihit effort in 16 games.

    Reyes leads the NL in hits (94) and ranks among the top three in total bases, doubles, triples and steals.

    "Obviously, I get to see him everyday, and in mind my mind the answer to (whether he's the NL MVP to this point) would be yes," manager Terry Collins said.

    Reyes certainly enjoys playing at PNC Park, where he has six consecutive multihit games and is batting .468 over his last 10 contests.

    He's 8 for 22 lifetime against Maholm.

    Mike Pelfrey (3-4, 5.35) will oppose Maholm for the second time in 12 days as he seeks his first victory since May 10. The right-hander bounced back from allowing seven runs over five innings against the Pirates by holding the Brewers to two runs in six innings Wednesday, but left without a decision in a 7-6 loss.

    Pelfrey has made three starts at PNC. In his two wins, he held Pittsburgh to one earned run in 15 innings, but in the loss he was battered for nine runs in 3 2/3 frames.

    Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen, who's batting .488 during an 11-game hitting streak, is 6 for 12 against Pelfrey.

    New York vs. Pittsburgh
    New York Mets (32-33) at Pittsburgh Pirates (31-33), 7:05 p.m.

    (Sports Network) - The New York Mets shoot for .500 and a series win this evening when they wrap up a four-game set with the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

    The Mets moved one step closer to the break even mark on Sunday, as Chris Capuano tossed seven scoreless innings to lead New York past Pittsburgh, 7-0.

    Capuano (5-6) scattered three hits and two walks while fanning five as the Mets were victorious for the seventh time in 10 games.

    "Our goal is to win and win and win and to get above .500," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "That's our goal. We keep looking at the .500 [mark]. If we play good baseball we'll get there and beyond. But it can't just be, 'Hey, let's get to .500.' That's not where you want to be."

    Kevin Correia (8-5) allowed four runs on seven hits in 7 2/3 innings for the loss, the third in four games for the Pirates.

    Correia was perfect through four innings before allowing a two-out single to Jason Bay in the fifth.

    "They hit their spots. Two different-type pitchers that stayed away from the barrel, kept the ball down and had a lot of miss-hits of the bat. It was well played until the end," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said about the pitchers.

    Getting the call for the Mets tonight will be right-hander Mike Pelfrey, who is 3-4 with a 5.35 ERA. Pelfrey did not get a decision on Wednesday in Milwaukee, but pitched well, allowing two runs and four hits in six innings of a 7-6 loss.

    Pelfrey was roughed up by the Pirates two starts ago for seven runs in five innings, but escaped without a decision. He is 3-1 lifetime against them with a 5.28 ERA.

    Pittsburgh, meanwhile, will counter with lefty Paul Maholm, who has pitched a lot better than his 2-7 record may indicate. Maholm was terrific on Wednesday against Arizona, as he allowed just one hit over six scoreless innings. However, he did not get a decision in his team's 3-2 win, despite lowering his ERA to 3.39.

    Maholm opposed Pelfrey on June 2 and like his counterpart, he was awful and did not receive a decision. The Pirates spotted Maholm seven runs in that one, but he gave it all back, surrendering seven runs (six earned) in 5 2/3 frames. He is 3-3 in nine starts against them with a 5.15 ERA.

    The Mets and Pirates split a four-game set in Flushing, N.Y. from May 30-June 2, but New York is 11-4 in the last 15 meetings overall.

    Harrison, McCutchen out, McKenry in
    June 13th, 2011

    Josh Harrison will sit out for a second straight game tonight with a tight right oblique muscle, but said he felt a lot better today than he did on Sunday.

    He is still unavailable for tonight’s wrap-up against the Mets, and as far as Harrison knew was not going to be allowed to swing the bat again today.

    Manager Clint Hurdle said they plan to get him on the field on Wednesday, and they should know at that time whether he’s close or if they’ll have to explore putting him on the disabled list.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]If he does go on the DL, Hurdle said that Chase d’Arnaud is one of the players they’ve discussed bringing up from Triple-A.[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    Decimating the offense even more, Andrew McCutchen won’t play tonight, either. Hurdle gave him the day off, despite McCutchen leading all National League player in hits in 11 games in June, going 20 for 41 with five doubles, a home run, 10 RBI and nine runs scored. He’s also on a career-best 11-game hitting streak, the longest by a Pirates player this year.

    Hurdle’s well aware of how well McCutchen’s hitting, and even added that he’s 6 for 12 lifetime against Mets starter Mike Pelfrey (along with two walks and no strikeouts). Here’s his explanation for the game off:
    “It’s a day off we talked about for a while. He’s sitting at 62 games and he’s red-lining a little bit. The guys were laughing, they think it’s a guaranteed win because both games he sat we won. … One thing we’ve tried to do is find time for guys. After yesterday’s game he knew (he’d be off). (With the day game on Sunday) it’s an opportunity to take advantage of a larger window of down time.”

    [HIGH-LIGHT]McCutchen will be available for pinch-hitting duty, and new catcher Michael McKenry will make his Pirates debut tonight.[/HIGH-LIGHT]
