Mets Vs. Rockies: Jamie Moyer, Johan Santana Duel In Rubber Game

The Colorado Rockies and the New York Mets split the first two games of this three-game weekend series, the latter taking the Saturday contest, 7-5. The Rockies continue to hover around .500 and are 10-10 through the first 20 games of the season. Which side of .500 will they be on after Sunday's game?

Jamie Moyer (1-2, 2.28 ERA) makes the start for the Rockies after taking a no-decision his last time out. He allowed just one runs over six innings to the Pittsburgh Pirates, but Rex Brothers and Matt Belisle each blew the game in the later innings. Moyer's 2.28 ERA leads all Rockies starters this season. Not bad for a 49-year-old pitcher.

Johan Santana (0-2, 3.00 ERA) enters this contest fresh off his best start in four games. Though he took a no-decision against the Miami Marlins in that game, Santana allowed just one run on three hits in 6.2 innings. He struck out 11 in a game the Mets eventually won, 2-1.
