GAME 1: Hiroki Kuroda (2-0, 2.18) vs. Johan Santana (2-1, 2.59).
GAME 2: Charlie Haeger (0-2, 6.46) vs. Oliver Perez (0-2, 3.71).
COMMENTS: Doubleheader! Yesterday's rainout afforded the Dodger bullpen some valuable downtime. And Kuroda and Haeger are the two starters most capable of going deep into games. So far, so good. The bad news? The splendid Santana, off to a strong start this season, and Haeger pitching on three days' rest.
Offensively, the Mets are getting it done despite the absence of Carlos Beltran and slow starts by David Wright and Jose Reyes. The Dodger bats are looking to rebound from a rough weekend in D.C., but with humidity in the air and Citi Field's low park factor, home runs may not be on the menu.
UPDATE 3:46p: I can't let this (what appears to be tracking toward a) losing GT stand. I'm making a new one for Game 2. --SoSG Sax
