The Mets will be facing the Cardinals shortly and it is nice to see Ryan Church back in the line up. The Mets send Ollie Perez to the mound looking for his second win against righty Todd Wellemeyer who is 1-1. The Cardinals have lost there last 2 games but do have some guys who are starting off the season pretty hot. Ryan Ludwick is hitting a stellar .405 with, five homers and 15 RBI . Chris Duncan carries a 12-game hitting streak into the contest.
The Mets will have the lineup of Reyes, Murphy, Beltran batting 3rd tonight with Delgado 4th and Wright 5th followed by Church, Castro and the hot hitting Castillo batting 8th. Perez hits ninth.
