From Dodgers.com, the scouting report on the starters:
Dodgers: There was no sign of the finger blister when Penny returned from the All-Star Game to throttle the Phillies, allowing one run on four hits over seven innings. He finished with a flourish, striking out the last four batters he faced and seven of the last 10. Penny lost his first three starts after the 2006 All-Star break. Penny is 4-10 with a 5.82 lifetime against the Mets.
Mets: In his first start since his assignment to the disabled list ended, Sosa pitched well enough to win but didn't. He allowed five hits and two walks and had four strikeouts in six innings, showing no lingering effects of the hamstring pull that put him on the DL. Sosa was battered by the Dodgers in Los Angeles on June 13, yielding six earned runs over 5 2/3 innings.
