Glavine takes mound for Mets in rubber game

Aug 23, 2007 - 3:00 PM San Diego (67-58) at NY Mets (71-54) 7:10 pm EDT

FLUSHING, New York (Ticker) -- After seeing the San Diego Padres send out a pair of aces to open the series, the New York Mets will answer with one of their own when the teams meet in the rubber game of the three-game series on Thursday.

The 2004 National League ERA leader, Jake Peavy allowed two runs and two hits with 11 strikeouts in six innings of the Padres' 7-5 win on Wednesday.

The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for the Mets, who hold a five-game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League East.

Tom Glavine (11-6, 4.12 ERA), who leads the Mets' staff in innings pitched, has been particularly impressive over his last five starts, going 3-0 and allowing as many as three runs only once. He is unbeaten in his last eight turns, not absorbing a loss since July 2.

Included in that stretch was Friday's 6-2 win over the Washington Nationals in which the lefthander yielded one run and eight hits over seven innings. In addition to his 22-12 record with a 3.46 ERA in 44 career starts against the Padres, Glavine has not lost at home since May 30 - a span of six starts.

His counterpart will be Justin Germano (6-7, 4.18), who has won only once since June 14 - dropping seven decisions - after starting out the season with five consecutive wins.

In Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Houston Astros, the righthander surrendered three runs and five hits over six innings. The game continued a six-game stretch in which San Diego has managed two runs or less in his outings.
