Hernandez takes mound for suddenly struggling Mets

Jun 11, 2007 - 1:29 PM New York Mets (36-25) at Los Angles Dodgers (35-28) 10:10 pm EDT

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) - The New York Mets will look to end their two-game losing skid when the face the Los Angeles Dodgers in the opener of a three-game series on Monday.

The Mets, who have lost six of their last seven games, will send Orlando Hernandez to the mound.

Hernandez pitched six scoreless innings in his last outing but was not involved in the decision in a 4-2 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday. The 41-year-old righthander yielded three hits and four walks and recorded four strikeouts.

Hernandez (3-1, 1.94 ERA) has given up just two runs over 19 innings since returning from the disabled list on May 25.

New York could use some good pitching after giving up 21 hits and four walks in a 15-7 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

The Dodgers will counter with Randy Wolf (7-4, 4.03), who struggled in his last outing. The lefthander gave up five runs over five innings and struck out six in a 5-2 loss to the San Diego Padres on Wednesday.

Los Angeles has lost five of their last six contests, including an 11-5 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday.
