RHP Pelfrey looks for first win vs. Brewers

May 12, 2007 - 1:24 PM Milwaukee (24-11) at NY Mets (22-12) 1:10 pm EDT

FLUSHING, New York (Ticker) - Rookie Mike Pelfrey seeks his first win on Saturday when the New York Mets host the Milwaukee Brewers.

Pelfrey (0-4, 6.39 ERA) is the organization's top prospect, but has been the weak link in the rotation this season.

Milwaukee is second in the league in home runs and seventh in runs scored. J.J. Hardy and Prince Fielder each homered in the series opener and now they will look to tee off on Pelfrey, who will be making his 10th career start.

The 23-year-old righthander has been pitching well recently after a rough start to the season. He has allowed six runs in his last 11 2/3 innings compared to consecutive starts in April in which he allowed 10 runs in eight innings.

In his last start, Pelfrey allowed three runs and three hits in 5 1/3 innings in a 3-1 loss to Arizona last Sunday.

The ninth overall pick of the 2005 draft, Pelfrey will look to keep New York rolling. The Mets have won three in a row and took the series opener, 5-4, on Friday night. David Wright and Carlos Delgado each hit home runs as New York snapped Milwaukee's six-game winning streak.

Staff ace Ben Sheets (2-2, 4.04) takes the mound in hopes of getting the Brewers back on track. He will have to do it on the road, where he has struggled in recent years. Sheets has a 12-17 record and 3.30 ERA in 36 road starts since the beginning of the 2004 season. At home he is a different pitcher, going 16-13 with a 2.99 ERA during the same span.

In his last outing, Sheets allowed two runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings but did not factor in the decision as Milwaukee beat Pittsburgh last Sunday.
