Game 2 Preview: Mets at Phillies, 1:10 PM

Jon Niese (1-3, 5.10 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, 1.75 K/BB): Niese seemed to settle down a bit against the Astros in his last start, but the fact still remains–Jon Niese has been very hittable in 2011. Hitters currently own a collective .283/.362/.398 line against him, and the lefty’s lack of control (3.6 BB/9) isn’t exactly keeping men off the bases either. (Career vs. Phillies: .253/.324/.337 line with a 3.96 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, 3.00 K/BB)

Roy Halladay (3-1, 2.41 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 6.50 K/BB): What’s there to say about Roy Halladay? He’s easily the best pitcher in the National League, and arguably all of baseball. He doesn’t walk batters (1.4 BB/9 in 2011), and has the ability to strike anyone out (9.4 K/9 in 2011). Despite being 34 years-old, “Doc” doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. (Career vs. Mets: .263/.297/.413 line with a 3.43 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 5.00 K/BB)
